BACKGROUND: Cilostazol has a vasodilatory function that may be beneficial for patients with vasospastic angina (VSA). We conducted a randomized, open-label, controlled trial to compare the efficacy and safety of long-acting cilostazol and isosorbide mononitrate (ISMN) for VSA. METHODS: The study included patients with confirmed VSA between September 2019 and May 2021. Participants were randomly assigned to receive long-acting cilostazol (test group, 200 mg once daily) or conventional ISMN therapy (control group, 20 mg twice daily) for 4 weeks...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to analyze the ability of subendocardial viability ratio (SEVR) to predict the degree of coronary artery stenosis and the relationship between SEVR and the incidence of short-term cardiovascular endpoint events. METHOD: The indexes of 243 patients with chest pain were collected.. Binary logistic regression analyses were performed using the dichotomous outcome of high and non-high SYNTAX scores. Receiver operating characteristic curves were employed to comparatively analyze the diagnostic efficiencies of the indices and models...

Emerging evidence indicates a significant role of remnant cholesterol in contributing to the residual risk associated with major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE). This study aims to evaluate the dose-response relationship between remnant cholesterol and the risk of MACE. PubMed, Embase and Cochrane databases were reviewed to identify cohort studies published in English up to 1 August 2023. Twenty-eight articles were selected. Pooled hazard ratios (HR) and their 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated using fixed or random-effects models to evaluate the association between remnant cholesterol and the risk of MACE...

BACKGROUND: The coronary slow flow/no-reflow phenomenon (CSF/NRP) is a common complication of emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI). Its long-term prognostic value, however, remains unclear. This study investigated the long-term outcome and prognostic value of CSF/NRP after emergency PCI for STEMI. METHODS: This retrospective, multicenter registry-based cohort study was conducted in STEMI patients who underwent emergency PCI between 2015 and 2016...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular thrombus (LVT) is a severe cardiovascular complication occurring in approximately 10% of patients with acute anterior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. This study aimed to evaluate the association between neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and in-hospital major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) in patients with LVT. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This multicenter retrospective study was conducted between January 2000 and June 2022 in hospitalized patients with LVT...

OBJECTIVES: Inflammation is known as one of key pathophysiologic mechanisms of coronary artery disease. We aimed to investigate the relationship between white blood cell (WBC) count and long-term clinical outcomes of patients with vasospastic angina (VA). METHODS: A total of 823 patients who were diagnosed as VA without significant coronary lesion by coronary angiography with ergonovine provocation test were enrolled for analysis. Patients were divided according to WBC count tertile at the time of diagnosis: group I, tertile 1 and 2 (n = 546, <7490/ml); group II, tertile 3 (n = 277, ≥7490/ml)...

BACKGROUND: Untreated multivessel disease (MVD) in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has been linked to a higher risk of recurrent ischemia and death within one year . Current guidelines recommend percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for significant non-infarct artery (-ies) (non-IRA) stenosis in hemodynamically stable AMI patients with MVD, either during or after successful primary PCI, within 45-days. However, deciding the timing of revascularization for non-IRA in cases of MVD is uncertain...

BACKGROUND: In percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures for patients with unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) lesions, intravascular ultrasonography (IVUS) guidance has shown potential for enhancing clinical outcomes. However, studies confirming its superiority to conventional angiographic-guided PCI remain few. This study aimed to assess if IVUS-guided PCI for patients with unprotected LMCA stenosis improves clinical outcomes compared to angiographic-guided PCI. METHODS: This randomized clinical study enrolled 181 patients with ULMCA lesions scheduled for drug-eluting stent implantation...

BACKGROUND: A growing evidence on the correlation between hyperuricemia and cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been previously reported. However, there have been limited data on the impact of hyperuricemia on long-term clinical outcomes in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) who underwent percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA). METHODS: A total of 425 peripheral artery disease patients who underwent PTA for CLI were enrolled. The patients were divided into the hyperuricemia group (n = 101) and the normal group (n = 324)...

BACKGROUND: Increased levels of inflammatory markers have been found in association with the severity of coronary atherosclerosis. Systemic immuneinflammation index (SII), which is calculated by multiplying neutrophil and platelet counts and then dividing the result by the lymphocyte count, can also be used as a prognostic indicator in different cardiovascular diseases. In this study, we investigated SII levels and long-term mortality of patients with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI)...

BACKGROUND: Adverse cardiac events are common in older patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS), yet prognostic predictors are still lacking. This study investigated the long-term prognostic significance of non-invasive measures including endothelial function, carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), and vascular stiffness in older NSTEACS patients referred for invasive treatment. METHODS: NSTEACS patients aged 75 years and older recruited to a multicentre cohort study (NCT01933581) were assessed for baseline endothelial function using endoPAT logarithm of reactive hyperemia index (LnRHI), CIMT using B-mode ultrasound, and vascular stiffness using carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV)...

BACKGROUND: Conventional transradial access in women is associated with a lower success rate and a higher incidence of spasm compared to men. To date, the effect of sex on the performance of distal radial access (DRA) has not been fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of sex on catheterization success and other performance parameters of DRA procedures. METHODS: This is a prospective three-center observational study. From August 2020 to September 2022, data from all consecutive patients who underwent DRA for coronary procedures were collected...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study is to assess the value of beta-2-microglobulin (B2M) and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) as prognostic factors in the population of patients over 65 years of age with frailty hospitalized due to acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS: Patients aged ≥65 years with ACS were included. Assessment of frailty was carried out using the FRAIL scale. The measurement of NSE and B2M was carried out three times during hospitalization: (1) at the time of admission, (2) on the second day of hospitalization, (3) on the seventh day of hospitalization, or the day of discharge if it was before the seventh day...
