BACKGROUND: D-dimer is elevated in a variety of conditions. The purpose of this study was to assess the positive predictive value of D-dimer to rule in patients with confirmed pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, acute aortic dissection or thrombosis of the upper extremity in comparison to patients with elevated D-dimer for other reasons. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 1334 patients presenting to the emergency department with pulmonary embolism (n=193), deep vein thrombosis (n=73), acute a...

BACKGROUND: Among patients presenting with an acute coronary syndrome, those with previous coronary artery bypass grafting are a particular subset. AIMS: The purpose of this study was to investigate the prognostic impact of previous coronary artery bypass grafting in acute coronary syndrome patients and to identify the current trends in their clinical management. METHODS: We performed a cohort analysis of patients prospectively enrolled in the Portuguese Registry of acute coronary syndrome betwe...

BACKGROUND: Current strategies for prognostic stratification in haemodynamically stable patients with acute pulmonary embolism require improvement. The aims of this study in haemodynamically stable patients with acute pulmonary embolism were (a) to evaluate the prognostic value of a novel respiratory index (oxygen saturation in air to respiratory rate ratio) and (b) to derive a risk model which includes the respiratory index and evaluate its value in predicting 30-day mortality. METHODS: Prospec...

AIMS: Most out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur at home with dismal bystander defibrillation rates. We investigated automated external defibrillator coverage of home arrests, and the proportion potentially reachable with an automated external defibrillator before emergency medical service arrival according to different bystander activation strategies. METHODS AND RESULTS: Cardiac arrests in homes (private/nursing/senior homes) in Copenhagen, Denmark (2008-2016) and registered automated external...

BACKGROUND: Anakinra, a recombinant interleukin-1 receptor antagonist is effective in treatment of idiopathic recurrent pericarditis. However, its efficacy in non-idiopathic pericarditis (secondary to a diagnosed inflammatory condition, or other known etiology) is unclear. We evaluated the efficacy of anakinra in patients with non-idiopathic (secondary to a diagnosed inflammatory condition, or other known etiology) and idiopathic pericarditis, who were intolerant or refractory to conventional th...

BACKGROUND: The European Society of Cardiology established a set of quality indicators for the management of acute myocardial infarction. Our aim was to evaluate their degree of attainment, prognostic value and potential use for centre benchmarking in a large international cohort. METHODS: Quality indicators were extracted from the long-tErm follow-uP of antithrombotic management patterns In acute CORonary syndrome patients (EPICOR) (555 hospitals, 20 countries in Europe and Latin America, 2010-...

BACKGROUND: Plasma amino-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide and antigen carbohydrate 125 levels are positively associated with a higher risk of adverse clinical outcomes in acute heart failure. As a proxy of congestion, antigen carbohydrate 125 has also been proposed as a right-sided heart failure marker. Thus, we aimed to determine in this population the main factors - including echocardiographic right-sided heart failure parameters - associated with antigen carbohydrate 125 and amino-term...

Most of the guideline-recommended treatment strategies for patients with acute coronary syndromes have been tested in large randomised clinical trials. Still, a major challenge is represented by pa...
