OBJECTIVE: To explore the relationship between inhospital outcomes and different estimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFRs) and determine an optimal eGFR cutoff value for predicting risk in patients with renal insufficiency (RI). BACKGROUND: RI is a predictor of poor prognosis in patients with myocardial infarction undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, the cutoff value of the eGFR is questionable. METHODS: We included 10,240 patients with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary PCI from January 2013 to January 2016 who participated in the China Acute Myocardial Infarction registry...

BACKGROUND: Mortality of ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) decreased drastically, mainly through reduction in inhospital mortality. Prehospital sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) became one of the most feared complications. We assessed the incidence, outcome, and prognosis' predictors of prehospital SCA occurring after emergency medical services (EMS) arrival. METHODS AND RESULTS: Data were taken between 2006 and 2014 from the e-MUST study (Evaluation en Médecine d'Urgence des Strategies Thérapeutiques des infarctus du myocarde) that enrolls all STEMI managed by EMS in the Greater Paris Area, including those dead before hospital admission...

Primary percutaneous coronary intervention is the current standard of care in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, large thrombus is an independent predictor for stent thrombosis and major adverse cardiac events in patients undergoing primary angioplasty for STEMI. Here we report a series of STEMI patients with large thrombus burden treated successfully with low dose intracoronary thrombolysis. There was prompt and early ST resolution. There was improvement in thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) flow and myocardial blush grade postlysis in all patients...

BACKGROUND: Failure to rescue (FTR), defined as death after a major complication, is a metric increasingly being used to assess quality of care. Risk factors associated with FTR after esophagectomy have not been previously studied. METHODS: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was queried for patients who underwent esophagectomy with gastric conduit between 2010 and 2014. Patients with at least one major postoperative complication were grouped according to inhospital mortality (FTR group) and survival to discharge (SUR group)...

BACKGROUND: Prior studies have reported higher inhospital mortality in women versus men with non-ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction. Whether this is because of worse baseline risk profile compared with men or sex-based disparities in treatment is not completely understood. METHODS AND RESULTS: We queried the 2003 to 2014 National Inpatient Sample databases to identify all hospitalizations in patients aged ≥18 years with the principal diagnosis of non-ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction...

Potassium levels (K, mEq/L) fluctuate in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Potassium was reported to be associated with prognosis in patients with AMI; however, studies evaluating the prognostic value of K fluctuations in this setting are scarce. We retrospectively analyzed patients with AMI hospitalized in a tertiary medical center, through 2002 to 2012. Patients on chronic dialysis or mechanical ventilation were excluded. Based on all K values during hospitalization, minimal, maximal, and fluctuation (gap between 2 consecutive K) were recorded...

OBJECTIVES: Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is a common and potentially severe complication in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). There is no consensus on the best definition of CI-AKI to identify patients at risk of haemodialysis or death. The objective of this study was to assess the association of CI-AKI, using four definitions, on inhospital mortality, mortality or haemodialysis requirement over 1-year follow-up, in patients with STEMI treated with pPCI...

BACKGROUND: Although cancer treatment considerably affects cardiovascular health, little is known about how cancer patients are treated for an acute myocardial infarction. We aimed to investigate whether acute myocardial infarction patients with a history of cancer received the same guideline recommended treatment as those acute myocardial infarction patients without and whether they differ with respect to inhospital outcome. METHODS: All patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, enrolled between 2002 and mid-2015 in the acute myocardial infarction in Switzerland (AMIS Plus) registry with comorbidity data based on the Charlson comorbidity index were analysed...
