Antiplatelet use in interventional cardiology. (1/261)

Thrombosis within the target vessel is one of the most feared complications associated with coronary intervention, as it is often associated with severe adverse clinical sequelae. This thrombosis is mediated via the activation and aggregation of platelets and therefore considerable effort has been directed at ways of inhibiting platelet function. It is now mandatory to consider the use of two and often three different antiplatelet agents, particularly when intracoronary stents are inserted. Using these regimes, many of the adverse clinical outcomes associated with platelet activation can be reduced.  (+info)

Comparison of two different approaches for internal jugular vein cannulation in surgical patients. (2/261)

We compared the anterior approaches of internal jugular venous cannulation in 200 surgical patients, vis-a-vis the ease of cannulation and threading, number of attempts required and the incidence of complications following each route. The technique of posterior approach used in this study was found to have a higher rate of success in cannulation and lower rate of complication such as carotid puncture. The posterior approach was also a safe alternate route in obese or short necked patients.  (+info)

Clinical outcomes of point-of-care testing in the interventional radiology and invasive cardiology setting. (3/261)

BACKGROUND: Point-of-care testing (POCT) can provide rapid test results, but its impact on patient care is not well documented. We investigated the ability of POCT to decrease inpatient and outpatient waiting times for cardiovascular procedures. METHODS: We prospectively studied, over a 7-month period, 216 patients requiring diagnostic laboratory testing for coagulation (prothrombin time/activated partial thromboplastin time) and/or renal function (urea nitrogen, creatinine, sodium, and potassium) before elective invasive cardiac and radiologic procedures. Overall patient management and workflow were examined in the initial phase. In phase 2, we implemented POCT but utilized central laboratory results for patient management. In phase 3, therapeutic decisions were based on POCT results. The final phase, phase 4, sought to optimize workflow around the availability of POCT. Patient wait and timing of phlebotomy, availability of laboratory results, and therapeutic action were monitored. Split sampling allowed comparability of POCT and central laboratory results throughout the study. RESULTS: In phase 1, 44% of central laboratory results were not available before the scheduled time for procedure (n = 135). Mean waiting times (arrival to procedure) were 188 +/- 54 min for patients who needed renal testing (phase 2; n = 14) and 171 +/- 76 min for those needing coagulation testing (n = 24). For patients needing renal testing, POCT decreased patient wait times (phases 3 and 4 combined, 141 +/- 52 min; n = 18; P = 0.02). For patients needing coagulation testing, wait times improved only when systematic changes were made in workflow (phase 4, 109 +/- 41 min; n = 12; P = 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Although POCT has the potential to provide beneficial patient outcomes, merely moving testing from a central laboratory to the medical unit does not guarantee improved outcomes. Systematic changes in patient management may be required.  (+info)

Prolonged antibiotic prophylaxis after cardiovascular surgery and its effect on surgical site infections and antimicrobial resistance. (4/261)

BACKGROUND: Despite evidence supporting short antibiotic prophylaxis (ABP), it is still common practice to continue ABP for more than 48 hours after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. METHODS AND RESULTS: To compare the effect of short (<48 hours) versus prolonged (>48 hours) ABP on surgical site infections (SSIs) and acquired antimicrobial resistance, we conducted an observational 4-year cohort study at a tertiary-care center. An experienced infection control nurse performed prospective surveillance of 2641 patients undergoing CABG surgery. The main exposure was the duration of ABP, and main outcomes were the adjusted rate of SSI and the isolation of cephalosporin-resistant enterobacteriaceae and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (acquired antibiotic resistance). Adjustment for confounding was performed by multivariable modeling. A total of 231 SSIs (8.7%) occurred after a median of 16 days, including 93 chest-wound infections (3.5%) and 13 deep-organ-space infections (0. 5%). After 1502 procedures using short ABP, 131 SSIs were recorded, compared with 100 SSIs after 1139 operations with prolonged ABP (crude OR, 1.0; CI, 0.8 to 1.3). After adjustment for possible confounding, prolonged ABP was not associated with a decreased risk of SSI (adjusted OR, 1.2; CI, 0.8 to 1.6) and was correlated with an increased risk of acquired antibiotic resistance (adjusted OR, 1.6; CI, 1.1 to 2.6). CONCLUSIONS: Our findings confirm that continuing ABP beyond 48 hours after CABG surgery is still widespread; however, this practice is ineffective in reducing SSI, increases antimicrobial resistance, and should therefore be avoided.  (+info)

Aortic valve repair for adult congenital heart disease: A 22-year experience. (5/261)

BACKGROUND: Aortic valve-preserving procedures have resulted in excellent outcomes in selected patients, particularly those with normal aortic valve leaflets and dilated aortic roots. However, several congenital heart lesions are associated with abnormal aortic valve leaflets. The long-term results of aortic valve repair for these lesions are not well defined. METHODS AND RESULTS: We reviewed the clinical records of 54 adult (age >18 years) patients who underwent repair of congenital abnormalities of the aortic valve between 1976 and September 1999. Follow-up data were available on 52 (96%) patients (mean 50+/-67 months, range 1 to 266). Patients underwent repair at a mean age of 34+/-14 years with associated diagnoses of subaortic stenosis (n=10), ventricular septal defect with prolapsing aortic valve (n=17), bicuspid aortic valve (n=23), sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (n=10), and bacterial endocarditis (n=2). There was 1 operative death (1.9%) and 3 late deaths. Survival at 5 and 10 years was 98+/-2% and 74+/-12%, respectively. Freedom from reoperation was 74+/-9% and 51+/-15% at 5 and 10 years, respectively. The presence of a ventricular septal defect predicted failure of valve repair (59% versus 22%, P:=0.01). A bicuspid aortic valve, subaortic stenosis, or the requirement for mitral valve surgery did not affect outcomes. CONCLUSIONS: Aortic valve repair in adult patients with congenital heart disease can be performed with minimal morbidity and mortality rates. The medium-term results of repair are acceptable, regardless of valvular or associated pathology. However, only 31 patients (57%) demonstrated long-term competence of the aortic valve, suggesting that most adult patients with congenital aortic valve disease will eventually require aortic valve replacement.  (+info)

Bioengineered cardiac grafts: A new approach to repair the infarcted myocardium? (6/261)

BACKGROUND: The myocardium is unable to regenerate because cardiomyocytes cannot replicate after injury. The heart is therefore an attractive target for tissue engineering to replace infarcted myocardium and enhance cardiac function. We tested the feasibility of bioengineering cardiac tissue within novel 3-dimensional (3D) scaffolds. METHODS AND RESULTS: We isolated and grew fetal cardiac cells within 3D porous alginate scaffolds. The cell constructs were cultured for 4 days to evaluate viability and morphology before implantation. Light microscopy revealed that within 2 to 3 days in culture, the dissociated cardiac cells form distinctive, multicellular contracting aggregates within the scaffold pores. Seven days after myocardial infarction, rats were randomized to biograft implantation (n=6) or sham-operation (n=6) into the myocardial scar. Echocardiography study was performed before and 65+/-5 days after implantation to assess left ventricular (LV) remodeling and function. Hearts were harvested 9 weeks after implantation. Visual examination of the biograft revealed intensive neovascularization from the neighboring coronary network. Histological examination revealed the presence of myofibers embedded in collagen fibers and a large number of blood vessels. The specimens showed almost complete disappearance of the scaffold and good integration into the host. Although control animals developed significant LV dilatation accompanied by progressive deterioration in LV contractility, in the biograft-treated rats, attenuation of LV dilatation and no change in LV contractility were observed. CONCLUSIONS: Alginate scaffolds provide a conducive environment to facilitate the 3D culturing of cardiac cells. After implantation into the infarcted myocardium, the biografts stimulated intense neovascularization and attenuated LV dilatation and failure in experimental rats compared with controls. This strategy can be used for regeneration and healing of the infarcted myocardium.  (+info)

Socioeconomic status is an important determinant of the use of invasive procedures after acute myocardial infarction in New York State. (7/261)

BACKGROUND: Patient and hospital characteristics influence the use of invasive cardiac procedures. Whether socioeconomic status (SES) has an influence that is independent of these other determinants is unclear. The purpose of the present study was to examine the influence of household income as a measure of SES on the use of invasive cardiac procedures among a large group of patients with acute myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS: We analyzed administrative discharge data from 231 nonfederal acute care hospitals in New York State that involved 28 698 black or white inpatients with International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification code 410.XX in the principal diagnosis position between January 1 and December 31, 1995. Household income was derived from postal ZIP codes and census data. The use of cardiac catheterization, PTCA, CABG, and any revascularization procedure was examined across groups stratified by income. Patients who resided in lower-income neighborhoods were more often female or black, had a higher prevalence of coexistent illness, had a higher use of Medicaid insurance, and were less often admitted to urban hospitals or hospitals that provide on-site CABG and PTCA. Crude and adjusted odds ratios for catheterization, PTCA, CABG, and any revascularization procedure were related to income in a graded fashion. After adjustment, patients in the highest quintile of income were 22% more likely to undergo catheterization, 74% more likely to undergo PTCA, 48% more likely to undergo CABG, and 76% more likely to undergo any revascularization procedure than were patients in the lowest quintile. The difference in cardiac catheterization did not fully account for income-based differences in revascularization, because income remained a significant determinant of revascularization after accounting for whether a catheterization was performed. Even among patients treated in hospitals that provide on-site CABG and PTCA, income was a significant determinant of procedures. CONCLUSIONS: Lower-income patients hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction are more often female or black, have more coexisting illnesses, and are less often admitted to urban hospitals or hospitals that provide CABG and PTCA. Even after adjustment for these and other factors, lower income is a negative predictor of procedure use.  (+info)

Tetralogy of Fallot: transannular and right ventricular patching equally affect late functional status. (8/261)

BACKGROUND: In tetralogy of Fallot, transannular patching is suspected to be responsible for late right ventricular dilatation. METHODS AND RESULTS: In our institution, 191 patients survived a tetralogy of Fallot repair between 1964 and 1984. Transannular patching was used in 99 patients (52%), patch closure of a right ventriculotomy in 35, and direct closure of a right ventriculotomy in 55. Two had a transatrial-transpulmonary approach. To identify predictive factors of adverse long-term outcome related to right ventricular dilatation, the following events were investigated: cardiac death, reoperation for symptomatic right ventricular dilatation, and NYHA class II or III by Cox regression analysis. Mean follow-up reached 22+/-5 years. The 30-year survival was 86+/-5%. Right ventricular patching, whether transannular or not, was the most significant independent predictor of late adverse event (improvement chi(2)=16.6, P:<0.001). In patients who had direct closure, the ratio between end-diastolic right and left ventricular dimensions on echocardiography was smaller (0.61+/-0.017 versus 0. 75+/-0.23, P:=0.007), with a smaller proportion presenting severe pulmonary insufficiency (9% versus 40%, P:=0.005). There was no difference between right ventricular and transannular patching concerning late outcome (log rank P: value=0.6), right ventricular size (0.70+/-0.28 versus 0.76+/-0.26, P:=0.4), or incidence of severe pulmonary insufficiency (30% versus 43%, P:=0.3). CONCLUSIONS: In tetralogy of Fallot, transannular patching does not result in a worse late functional outcome than patching of an incision limited to the right ventricle. Both are responsible for a similar degree of long-term pulmonary insufficiency and right ventricular dilatation.  (+info)

Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) occurs when a tissue (ex. heart) becomes less vulnerable to an ischemic insult if a remote tissue (ex. arm) has had previous exposure to a period of ischemia and reperfusion. A beneficial effect of RIPC has been demonstrated in several randomized studies in patients undergoing cardiac and vascular surgery, as well as interventional cardiac procedures such as angioplasty. They have shown improvements in cardiac, renal, neurologic and respiratory function. Most have focused on surrogate outcomes, such as biochemical markers of cardiac and renal function in low-risk patients. No trials have investigated only high-risk patients or been designed to detect clinical outcomes.. This study is a randomized-controlled trial powered to detect clinical events in a high-risk cohort undergoing cardiovascular surgery. Patients will be randomized to RIPC (exposed to cycles of inflation of a blood pressure cuff on the upper arm prior to undergoing surgery) or control (no ...

VADs are mechanical pumps designed to help patients with heart failure, a condition that can reduce the hearts capability to pump blood. VADs receive blood from the left ventricle of the heart and deliver it to the aorta, providing the strength necessary to maintain proper blood flow throughout the body. VADs can relieve symptoms, including breathlessness and fatigue, and can offer temporary support for patients awaiting transplants. VADs may also provide an alternative to long-term medication.

Results. Significant annual differences in outpatient costs were observed for patients with GCA in each of the first 4 years (median differences: $2085, $437, $382, $388, respectively). In adjusted analyses, median incremental cost attributed to GCA over a 5-year period was $4662. Compared with matched referent subjects, patients with GCA had higher use of laboratory visit-days annually for each of the first 3 years following incidence/index date, and increased outpatient physician visits for years 0-1, 1-2, and 3-4. Patients with GCA had significantly more radiology visit-days in years 0-1, 3-4, and 4-5, and more ophthalmologic procedures/surgery in years 0-1, 1-2, 2-3, and 4-5 compared to non-GCA. Emergency medicine visits, musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular procedures/surgery were similar between GCA and non-GCA groups throughout the study period. ...

Websters Dictionary gives us 2 ways to pronounce the word spelled "appropriate" and more than 2 definitions (1). One definition for the verb is "to take exclusive possession of to the exclusion of others." For the adjective it is "suitable for a particular person, condition or occasion …" As it is currently being applied in the selection for cardiovascular procedures, the word "appropriate" is taking center stage. Not the verb, although some of our critics would like to believe that device and procedure selection is for personal gain "to take possession of" and therefore to receive the benefit from. Another definition of the verb should be of interest to us, that is, the appropriation of our collective resources to health care research, and so on. That could be the subject of another epistle. But, it is not the verb that is creating so much interest. It is the adjective, "appropriate," that sounds so benign. Even Aunt Lucy from Peoria would find this term perfectly reasonable.

The symptoms of congenital heart failure are addressed in this surgical procedure for mounting a patch in the ventricle of the heart to reduce ventricular volume. Placement of the patch is facilitated by palpating a beating heart to identify akinetic, although normal appearing, tissue. An apical patch having an oval configuration facilitates return of the heart to a normal apical shape which enhances muscle fiber efficiency and a normal writhing pumping action. An inferior patch having a triangular configuration can also be used. The patches include a semi-rigid ring, and a circumferential rim to address bleeding. Patch placement is further enhanced by creating a Fontan-type neck and use of pledged sutures. Intraoperative vascularization and valve replacement is easily accommodated. Increased injection fraction, reduced muscle stress, improved myocardial protection, and ease of accurate patch placement are all achieved with this procedure.

Thromboelastography analyzes a number of factors associated with anticoagulation, and is an objective indicator of anticoagulant activity [4]. Baseline thromboelastography values were established by analyzing 1 mL of blood from each animal after commencing general anesthesia. After beginning ECMO, thromboelastography was conducted on an hourly basis using rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM; Daeryun Instruments, Daejeon, Korea). Intrinsically activated thromboelastometric test (INTEM) data and extrinsically activated thromboelastometric test (EXTEM) data, including clotting time, the A10 value, and the alpha angle were statistically compared between the NM and heparin groups. INTEM data were acquired using a reagent containing phospholipids and ellagic acid, which activate the intrinsic anticoagulation pathway. Therefore, changes in INTEM show the degree to which an anticoagulant directly affects activation of the intrinsic pathway. EXTEM data were acquired using a reagent containing a tissue ...

Patterns in time, place and cause of death can have an important impact on calculated hospital mortality rates. Objective is to quantify these patterns following myocardial infarction and stroke admissions in Dutch hospitals during the period 1996-2003, and to compare trends in the commonly used 30-day in-hospital mortality rates with other types of mortality rates which use more extensive follow-up in time and place of death. Discharge data for all Dutch admissions for index conditions (1996-2003) were linked to the death certification registry. Then, mortality rates within the first 30, 90 and 365 days following admissions were analyzed for deaths occurring within and outside hospitals. Most deaths within a year after admission occurred within 30 days (60-70%). No significant trends in this distribution of deaths over time were observed. Significant trends in the distribution over place of death were observed for both conditions. For myocardial infarction, the proportion of deaths after transfer to

In 1974, after being assigned to the department of internal medicine at Kokura Memorial Hospital, Dr. Masakiyo Nobuyoshi* started to administer medical treatment focused on the circulatory system. Dr. Hideyuki Nosaka and Dr. Yukiyoshi Ito later joined Dr. Nobuyoshi, and established the Department of Cardiology in 1979. Catheter-based examinations began around this time, with PCIs beginning in 1981. According to Dr. Nobuyoshi, with the Department of Cardiology just established they were unable to procure an expensive angiography system, and instead performed cardiac catheterization using a Shimadzu gastric fluoroscopy system. This was apparently done because they were asked to perform cardiac catheterization by Dr. Toshihiko Ban* of the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery in order to perform bypass surgery. But they could not see any vessels using the gastric fluoroscopy system. I heard that because of this they carried out joint research with Shimadzu and improved the system into a cine film ...

The hippocampus is vulnerable to perinatal hypoxic/ischaemic insults with potential memory impairment in later life. We measured memory and hippocampal integrity in survivors of the Arterial Switch Operation (ASO) for Transposition of Great Arteries (TGA).. Methods We recruited 35 neurodevelopmentally normal children [mean (SD) age 10.9 (0.4) years] who had ASO and 21 age-matched healthy controls [11.6 (0.3) years]. Preterms and those with genetic syndromes and additional heart abnormalities were excluded. Clinical and intra-operative variables were analysed. All had standardised tests of intelligence, general memory and learning, academic achievements, and a special test of episodic memory (Rivermead Behavioural Memory Test). Hippocampal volumes (mm3) were measured using MRI corrected for intracranial volume.. Results In the 35 studied, 2 groups were identified: 25 with intact ventricular septum (TGA-IVS) and 10 with ventricular septal defect (TGA-VSD); median (IQR) age at ASO was 13 (9.5, ...
