There is a lack of studies that evaluate the association between normal weight central obesity and subsequent outcomes in patients with premature acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We evaluated 338 consecutive male patients (aged ≤ 55 years) with premature ACS. The primary outcomes were all-cause mortality and major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE). We compared the hazard ratios (HRs) in patients with and without normal weight central obesity using multivariable Cox proportional hazard models...

Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH) is a common genetic disorder predisposing affected individuals to lifelong low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) elevation and coronary heart disease. However, whether HeFH increases the risk of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and ischemic stroke is undetermined. We examined associations between HeFH and these outcomes in a comprehensive systematic review and meta-analysis. We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, Global Health, the Cochrane Library, and PubMed (for ahead-of-print publications) for relevant English-language studies...

Endothelial dysfunction is common in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and is associated with atherosclerotic disease. This study aimed to determine prognostic factors for endothelial dysfunction and identify relationships between reactive hyperemia index (RHI) score, clinically relevant coronary artery disease (>50% stenosis), and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) in patients with T2DM. Endothelial function was assessed using peripheral arterial tonometry and correlated with patient characteristics and cardiovascular outcomes during a median follow-up of 22...

We evaluated the relationship between admission heart rate (HR) and coronary artery disease severity and complexity in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). A total of 884 patients (mean age 59 [11] years, 24.7% female) who underwent coronary angiography for ACS and were treated with primary or selective percutaneous coronary intervention were included in this cross-sectional study. The measurement of admission HR was based on the first available resting electrocardiogram after admission. The SYNTAX score (SS) was calculated...

Major advances in coronary interventional techniques and pharmacotherapy as well as the use of drug-eluting stents (DESs) have considerably reduced the risk of in-stent restenosis (ISR). However, ISR remains a major clinical challenge. Inflammation and platelet activation are important processes that underlie the pathophysiology of ISR. Parameters related to blood cells, entailing both cell count and morphology, are useful markers of the inflammatory response and platelet activation in clinical practice. Recent studies have highlighted several new combined or derived parameters related to blood cells that independently predict ISR after DES implantation...

Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a prevalent and serious complication after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). Although the association between serum osmolarity and chronic kidney disease is well established, its relation to CIN in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing pPCI needs to be elucidated. We evaluated the predictive value of serum osmolarity for CIN development in patients with STEMI (n = 768) undergoing pPCI. Serum osmolarity on admission was calculated...

Conflicting evidence exists surrounding which conduit material is preferable in above-knee femoropopliteal bypass surgery. We performed a systemic review of electronic information sources to identify randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing vein versus prosthetic grafts in above-knee femoropopliteal bypasses. Eight RCTs reporting 1271 grafts (608 saphenous vein and 663 prosthetic) in 1132 patients were included. At 5 years, the vein group had significantly higher primary patency (odds ratio [OR]: 1.73, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1...

Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is a genetically determined risk factor for calcific aortic valve stenosis (CAVS) for which transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is increasingly utilized as treatment. We evaluated the effect of a program to increase testing of and define the prevalence of elevated Lp(a) among patients undergoing TAVR. Educational efforts and incorporation of a "check-box" Lp(a) order to the preoperative TAVR order set were instituted. Retrospective chart review was performed in 229 patients requiring TAVR between May 2013 and September 2018...

Molecules that govern bone metabolism, such as osteoprotegerin (OPG) and osteopontin (OPN), have been isolated from other tissues, including blood vessels. Atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (CAD) are leading causes of mortality worldwide. Despite novel biochemical and imaging techniques, early detection of CAD is still unsatisfactory. Experimental data indicate that bone turnover markers (BTMs) contribute to the development of atherosclerosis. This finding has sparked interest in their clinical use...
