Incidence, Predictors, and Clinical Impact of Early Prasugrel Cessation in Patients With ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction.
BACKGROUND: Early withdrawal of recommended antiplatelet treatment with clopidogrel adversely affects prognosis following percutaneous coronary interventions. Optimal antiplatelet treatment is essential following ST-segment ...
Rehospitalizations Following Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Patients With ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction: Results From a Multi-Center Randomized Trial.
BACKGROUND: Rehospitalizations (RHs) after ST-elevation myocardial infarction carry a high economic burden and may deteriorate quality of life. Characterizing patients at higher risk may allow the design of preventive ...
Assessing the cardiology community position on transradial intervention and the use of bivalirudin in patients with acute coronary syndrome undergoing invasive management: results of an EAPCI survey.
AIMS: Our aim was to report on a survey initiated by the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) collecting the opinion of the cardiology community on the invasive management of acute ...
Neointima and neoatherosclerotic characteristics in bare metal and first- and second-generation drug-eluting stents in patients admitted with cardiovascular events attributed to stent failure: an optical coherence tomography study.
AIMS: The aim of this study was to assess neoatherosclerotic plaque morphology in bare metal (BMS) and first- and second-generation drug-eluting stents (DES) in patients presenting with an event attributed to stent failure. ...
Arterial Remodeling After Bioresorbable Scaffolds and Metallic Stents.
BACKGROUND: Although previous observational studies have documented late luminal enlargement and expansive remodeling following implantation of a bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS), no comparison with metallic stents ...
