We aimed to evaluate the impact of thrombus aspiration (TA) during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (P-PCI) in ‘real-world’ settings. We performed a retrospective study, using data from the National Registry of Interventional Cardiology (RNCI 2006–2012, Portugal) with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients treated with P-PCI. The primary outcome, in-hospital mortality, was analysed through adjusted odds ratio (aOR) and 95% confidence intervals (95%CI). We assessed data for...

Abstract Although most congenital coronary artery anomalies have no prognostic implications, associations with sudden cardiac death have been described, particularly in the young. We report an exercise-associated collapse in an otherwise asymptomatic middle-aged female marathoner. The aborted sudden cardiac death approach revealed an unexpected initial presentation of a malignant anomalous left main coronary artery origin, with ostial stenosis and interarterial course. The present case illustrat...

Abstract Introduction and Objectives The aim of the present paper was to report trends in coronary angioplasty for the treatment of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in Portugal. Methods Prospective multicenter data from the Portuguese National Registry of Interventional Cardiology (RNCI) and official data from the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) were studied to analyze percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures for STEMI from 2002 to 2013. Results In 2013, 3524 primary pe...

Resumo A origem anomala das arterias coronarias e um achado pouco comum e que pode constituir um desafio diagnostico. Apresenta-se o caso clinico de uma doente com dor toracica recorrente durante o esforco, admitida com sindrome coronaria aguda e cuja coronariografia nao revelou lesoes coronarias epicardicas. Foi constatada origem da coronaria direita na parede ântero-lateral esquerda da aorta, acima dos seios de Valsalva, revelando a origem anomala dessa arteria e potencial compressao pela arte...

Abstract Congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries are uncommon and can present a diagnostic challenge. The authors present the case of a patient with recurrent chest pain during exertion admitted for acute coronary syndrome. Coronary angiography revealed no coronary lesions but showed that the right coronary artery originated from the anterolateral aortic wall, above the sinuses of Valsalva, leading to suspicion of compression by the pulmonary artery, confirmed by CT angiography. The patien...
