Microvascular obstruction (MVO) after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) leads to higher incidence of both early and late complications. A number of single nucleotide polymorphisms in 9p21 chromosome have been shown to affect angiogenesis in response to ischaemia. In particular, Rs1333040 with its three genotypic vriants C/C, T/C and T/T might influence the occurrence of MVO after pPCI.We enrolled ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients undergoing pPCI. The Rs1333040 polymorphism was evaluated by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism using restriction endonucleases (Bsml). Two expert operators unaware of the patients' identity performed the angiographic analysis; collaterals were assessed applying Rentrop's classification. Angiographic MVO was defined as a post-pPCI Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI)<3 or TIMI 3 with myocardial blush grade 0 or 1, whereas electrocardiographic MVO was defined as ST segment resolution <70% one hour after pPCI.Among our 133 STEMI patients (mean age 63 ± 11 years, men 72%), 35 (26%) and 53 (40%) respectively experienced angiographic or electrocardiographic MVO. Angiographic and electrocardiographic MVO were different among the three variants ( p= 0.03 and p=0.02 respectively). In particular, T/T genotype was associated with a higher incidence of both angiographic and electrocardiographic MVO compared with C/C genotype ( p=0.04 and p=0.03 respectively). Moreover, Rentrop score <2 detection rate differed among the three genotypes ( p=0.03). In particular T/T genotype was associated with a higher incidence of a Rentrop score <2 as compared with C/C genotype ( p= 0.02).Rs1333040 polymorphism genetic variants portend different MVO incidence. In particular, T/T genotype is related to angiographic and electrocardiographic MVO and to worse collaterals towards the culprit artery.

The success of a primary percutaneous intervention (PCI) in the setting of ST elevation myocardial infarction depends on the functional and structural integrity of coronary microcirculation. Coronary microvascular dysfunction and obstruction (CMVO) occurs in up to half of patients submitted to apparently successful primary PCI and is associated to a much worse outcome. The current review summarizes the complex mechanisms responsible for CMVO, including pre-existing coronary microvascular dysfunc...

Rationale: Genetic variation at the chromosome 9p21 cardiovascular risk locus has been associated with peripheral artery disease, but its mechanism remains unknown. Objective: To determine whether this association is secondary to an increase in atherosclerosis, or it is the result of a separate angiogenesis-related mechanism. Methods and Results: Quantitative evaluation of human vascular samples revealed that carriers of the 9p21 risk allele possess a significantly higher burden of immature intr...

Background Although the prognostic value of findings from cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging has been established in single-center center studies in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), a large multicenter investigation to evaluate the prognostic significance of myocardial damage and reperfusion injury is lacking. Objectives The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic impact of CMR in an adequately powered multicenter study and to evaluate the most poten...

Section Editor: Gregg W. Stone, MD, New York, New York at the end of the 1980s, data of retrospective angiographic studies suggested that in more than two-thirds of patients, acute myocardial infarction (AMI) evolves from mild to moderate (<70%) stenosis. This observation has been a paradigm for

No-reflow after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) may be reversible. 40 patients undergoing pPCI were evaluated by assessing either improvement or lack of changes regarding angiographic and electrocardiographic indexes of no-reflow between admission and pre-discharge.

Variation on chromosome 9p21 is associated with risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). This genomic region contains the CDKN2A and CDKN2B genes which encode the cell cycle regulators p16INK4a, p14ARF and p15INK4b and the ANRIL gene which encodes a non-coding RNA. Vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis which causes CAD. We ascertained whether 9p21 genotype had an influence on CDKN2A/CDKN2B/ANRIL expression levels in VSMCs, V...

Background—Increased permeability, predominantly controlled by endothelial junction stability, is an early event in the deterioration of vascular integrity in ischemic disorders. Hemorrhage, edema, and inflammation are the main features of reperfusion injuries, as observed in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Thus, preservation of vascular integrity is fundamental in ischemic heart disease. Angiopoietins are pivotal modulators of cell–cell junctions and vascular integrity. We hypothesized that ...

Methods and results Forty-two consecutive patients with first-time ST-elevation MI, single-vessel disease, successfully treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were included. Microvascular obstruction, infarct size, and LV remodelling were assessed by cardiac magnetic resonance. Cardiac magnetic ...

Aims Recent studies showed that polymorphisms on chromosome 9p21 are associated with coronary heart disease (CHD), but few studies examined the association with heart failure (HF), stroke, or other subclinical atherosclerotic diseases. We tested the association of chromosome 9p21 polymorphisms with non-coronary atherosclerotic diseases. Methods and results We studied 4018 African-American and 11 085 white participants from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study, aged 45–64 at baseline (19...

Abstract Background The treating aims of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are vessels recanalization and coronary flow restoration. Coronary slow flow phenomenon (CSFP) is one of the common complications in STEMI patients after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and leads to a higher incidence of adverse clinical outcomes. Alprostadil is a kind of liposomal prostaglandin E1 with beneficial effects on vasodilation, platelet disaggregation and fibrinolysis. But it still rem...
