Abstract It is estimated that each year in the United States, >780,000 persons will experience an acute coronary syndrome. Approximately 70% of these will have non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Optimal timing of angiography in NSTEMI is a matter of debate. The aim of this retrospective analysis was to evaluate whether and how the timing of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) affects the 1-year rate of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients presenting with NSTEMI. Wit...

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has evolved dramatically, along with patient complexity. We studied trends in in-hospital mortality with changes in patient complexity over the last decade stratified by clinical presentation. The study population included all patients presenting to the cardiac catheterization lab between January 2009 and July 2018. Expected in-hospital mortality was calculated using the National Cardiovascular Data Registry CathPCI risk scoring system. Yearly mean in-hos...

Abstract Background/Purpose. Women are underrepresented in cardiovascular clinical studies. Black women have a higher ischemic heart disease mortality risk than their white counterparts. However, there exist limited outcome data comparing black women and white women after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The aim of this retrospective analysis was to evaluate for racial disparities in 1-year major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in women undergoing PCI. Methods/materials Within our ...

In-stent restenosis (ISR) is an Achilles’ heel of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Balloon angioplasty, vascular brachytherapy (VBT), drug-eluting stents, and drug-coating balloons have been used for the treatment of ISR. For patients in whom VBT for prior ISR is unsuccessful, the

Despite on-going evolution and iteration of drug-eluting stent (DES) technology, the prevalence of in-stent restenosis (ISR) remains relatively unchanged, encompassing ≈10% of percutaneous coronary...

Race has been identified as an independent risk factor for poor prognosis and an independent predictor of survival in coronary artery disease. Race-related dissimilarities have been identified in cardiovascular patients in terms of age of presentation, co-morbidities, socioeconomic status, and treatment approach as well as genetically driven race-related disparities in responsiveness to medications. Antiplatelet therapy represents a fundamental component of therapy in cardiovascular patients, es...
