Abstract VEGF-B gene therapy is a promising proangiogenic treatment for ischemic heart disease, but unexpectedly, we found that high doses of VEGF-B promote ventricular arrhythmias (VA).VEGF-B knockout, αMHC-VEGF-B transgenic mice, and pigs transduced intramyocardially with adenoviral (Ad)VEGF- B186 were studied.Immunostaining showed a 2-fold increase in the number of nerves (76 vs.39 in controls, nerves/field,p

AIMS: We investigated the association between the use and findings of IVUS with clinical outcomes in the PCI arm of a randomised trial of LMS PCI. METHODS AND RESULTS: The NOBLE trial randomised patients with LMS disease to treatment by PCI or CABG. Of 603 patients treated by PCI, 435(72%) underwent post-PCI IVUS assessment of which 224 were analysed in a core-laboratory. At 5 years, the composite of MACCE were 18.9% if post-PCI IVUS was performed vs. 25.0% if not (p=0.45, after adjustment). Ove...

BACKGROUND: Preoperative permanent atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with impaired outcome after surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). The impact of preoperative paroxysmal AF, however, has remained elusive. PURPOSE: We assessed the impact of preoperative paroxysmal AF on outcome in patients undergoing SAVR with bioprosthesis. METHODS: A total of 666 patients undergoing isolated AVR with a bioprosthesis were included. Survival data was obtained from the national registry Statistics Finl...

Abstract Objectives Postpericardiotomy syndrome (PPS) is a relatively common complication after cardiac surgery. However, long-term follow-up data on the adverse events and mortality of PPS patients requiring invasive interventions are scarce. Methods We sought to assess the occurrence of mortality, new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF), cerebrovascular events, and major bleeds in PPS patients requiring medical attention in a combination database of 671 patients undergoing isolated surgical aortic ...

Background It is still uncertain whether coronary bifurcations with lesions involving a large side branch (SB) should be treated by stenting the main vessel and provisional stenting of the SB (simple) or by routine two-stent techniques (complex). We aimed to compare clinical outcome after treatment of lesions in large bifurcations by simple or complex stent implantation. Methods The study was a randomised, superiority trial. Enrolment required a SB≥2.75 mm, ≥50% diameter stenosis in both vessels...

Summary Background Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is increasingly used in revascularisation of patients with left main coronary artery disease in place of the standard treatment, coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The NOBLE trial aimed to evaluate whether PCI was non-inferior to CABG in the treatment of left main coronary artery disease and reported outcomes after a median follow-up of 3·1 years. We now report updated 5-year outcomes of the trial. Methods The prospective, randomis...

Aims We studied the purchases of medical therapy recommended for coronary artery disease patients before and after elective revascularisation (percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary bypass grafting (CABG)).
