More Screening Needed Before Non-Cardiac Surgery

More Screening Needed Before Non-Cardiac Surgery

According to this recent document by the American Heart Association (AHA), troponin should be monitored for at least 3 days after surgery. With about 20% of patients (most of them, asymptomatic) showing elevated troponin after a non-cardiac surgery, this new AHA document recommends monitoring, for at least two days, patients with moderate to severe ischemia. Myocardial

Drug-Eluting Balloons Find Their Niche

According to this large European registry, drug-eluting balloons (DEBs) are competing with drug-eluting stents (DES) to treat in-stent restenosis. Drug-eluting balloons seem to work equally well for the treatment of long-term in-stent restenosis compared with new stent implantation (for the thin-strut DES registry). If DEBs can compete with DES—adding to the advantage of avoiding a

STOPDAPT-2 ACS: One-Month DAPT NOT Enough in acute patients

One-month dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in patients undergoing acute coronary syndrome (ACS) did not reach the safety and efficacy results observed in the general population of the original trial STOPDAPT-2. The STOPDAPT-2 ACS compared one-month DAPT followed by clopidogrel monotherapy for one year vs. one-year DAPT after PCI.  Initially, the study enrolled mostly stable patients

Prevalence of Subclinical Coronary Atherosclerosis in the General Population

Early detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) using computed tomography (CT) and calcium score (CAC) might help plan prevention strategies years in advance. This study used CT to determine the prevalence and characteristics of atherosclerosis in the general population.  Non-contrast images were scored for CAC. After that, all images with atherosclerosis potential were assessed segment

XIENCE SHORT DAPT | Ideal DAPT Period for Patients at High Risk of Bleeding

In patients at high risk of bleeding undergoing coronary stenting with a Xience stent, 1-to-3-month DAPT period resulted non-inferior to a 6-to-12-month period in terms of ischemic events, and this could be associated to a lower rate of major bleeding and lower stent thrombosis incidence.  There is no longer an indication for conventional stents in
