Effectiveness of Unfractionated Heparin in Normal Saline versus Dextrose for Achieving and Maintaining Therapeutic Anti-Factor Xa Levels in Patients with Non-ST-Elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome.

Unfractionated heparin (UFH) administered by IV infusion is effective in preventing myocardial infarction and death after non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome. At the authors' centre, preparations of UFH in 0.9% sodium chloride (normal saline; UFH-NS) were used during a shortage of commercially available UFH in dextrose 5% in water (UFH-D5W), the usual preparation. Anecdotal observations raised concerns about the effectiveness of the saline-based preparation in achieving minimally therapeutic anticoagul...

Is there a role for novel oral anticoagulants in patients with an acute coronary syndrome? A review of the clinical trials.

The novel oral anticoagulant drugs, comprising dabigatran, rivaroxaban, and apixaban, have emerged as compelling alternatives to vitamin K antagonists for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation, and low‑molecular‑weight heparin for thromboprophylaxis following hip and knee arthroplasty. Rivaroxaban has also been approved for treatment of venous thromboembolism. However, the role of these drugs for the management of patients with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is less certain. The purpose of this rev...

High-Risk Non-ST Elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome Outcomes in Patients Treated with Unfractionated Heparin Monitored Using Anti-Xa Concentrations Versus Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time.

While the activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) is the most widely used assay to monitor unfractionated heparin (UFH), providing a general measure of the extent of anticoagulation, it does not reliably correlate with the blood concentration of heparin or its antithrombotic effect. While cost and availability have limited the widespread use of UFH in hospitals, monitoring UFH with heparin levels has been shown to reduce both the number of monitoring tests and the time to a therapeutic range.

Quality of life (QOL) evaluation after acute coronary syndrome with simultaneous clopidogrel treatment.

Double antiplatelet therapy with clopidogrel and acetylsalicylic acid is a standard procedure after acute coronary syndrome. This treatment carries a higher risk of complications. The main goal of this research was to assess the patients' quality of life after undergoing antiplatelet therapy with clopidogrel after acute coronary syndrome (ACS).

Woven coronary artery anomaly associated with acute coronary syndrome.

The woven coronary artery anomaly is a rare congenital anomaly in which a coronary artery is divided into thin channels that merge again into the distal lumen. Only a few cases of woven coronary artery have been reported in the literature. This anomaly is accepted as a benign condition. We describe a case of acute coronary syndrome in a patient with woven coronary artery anomaly.

Acute coronary syndrome as a result of left main coronary artery stenosis after aortic valve replacement. A report of three cases.

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) as a result of iatrogenic coronary ostial stenosis (ICOS) is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication of aortic valve replacement (AVR). We present three cases of patients with ACS shortly after AVR, in whom ICOS were revealed. They refused an operation and thus they were treated with percutaneous coronary intervention. The potential pathomechanisms of ICOS and treatment options are discussed.

Kounis syndrome, two case reports from Kragujevac, Serbia.

It is well-established that acute coronary syndromes occurs when thrombus formation from atheromatous plaques erode or rupture in the advanced stage of atherosclerotic process with severe reduction of coronary blood flow. Also, some conditions may trigger acute coronary syndrome even in the absence of prior cardiovascular disease, and with normal coronary vessels. One of the most important is Kounis syndrome, also known as "allergic angina" or "allergic myocardial infarction" in which the release of mediato...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection by intravascular ultrasound in a patient with myocardial infarction.

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is a rare cause of acute coronary syndrome and sudden cardiac death. The incidence, causes, pathogenesis, and treatment have not been defined clearly, but spontaneous coronary artery dissection should be considered in young patients without major cardiovascular risk factors or in patients in the peripartum period who present with acute coronary syndrome. The treatment is often challenging. Medical treatment is usually considered, and percutaneous coronary intervention...

Complete sustained reversal of cyclic ST-segment elevation (coronary cyclic flow variations) by low-dose intravenous nitroglycerin during acute coronary syndrome.

Recurrent ST-segment elevations in acute coronary syndromes have been attributed to coronary cyclic flow variations (CCFVs) possibly due to coronary vasospasm and unstable platelet aggregation in partially occluded arteries.

Acute myocardial infarction following honeybee sting.

The occurrence of acute myocardial infarction following a honeybee sting has been very rarely reported in the previous literature. Possible pathogenetic mechanisms include severe hypotension, rarely hypertension and coronary vasospasm with subsequent thrombosis of coronary vessels developed after the release of vasoactive, inflammatory and thrombogenic substances contained in the bee venom. This syndrome is also known as Kounis syndrome. We report a case of a 32-year-old man who presented with acute inferio...

The evaluations of frequency distribution heparin resistance during coronary artery bypass graft.

Heparin is one of the most important medication that is used in coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) operations, but some patients demonstrate heparin resistance (HR) during CABG. Heparin resistance was defined as at least one activated clothing time

Acute coronary syndrome in a 100-year-old woman treated successfully with primary percutaneous coronary angioplasty.

We present a case of a 100-year-old woman living alone with ST-elevation myocardial infarction acute coronary syndrome of the infero-lateral wall treated with percutaneous coronary intervention. Coronary angiography revealed critical 99% stenosis in the marginal branch of the circumflex artery and insignificant lesions in other arteries. Two bare metal stents were implanted successfully in the same session. The patient was discharged home in good general condition, able to live and function independently.

Acute coronary syndrome in Australia: Where are we now and where are we going?

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a significant contributor to both morbidity and mortality in Australia. Generally speaking, sufferers of ACS who live in rural areas and are treated at rural hospitals have poorer outcomes than those living in metropolitan areas.

Prognostic implications of optimal medical therapy in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention for acute coronary syndrome in octogenarians.

The proportion of elderly acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients who receive optimal medical therapy (OMT) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and whether OMT affects their long-term outcomes remain unclear. We retrospectively investigated 405 ACS patients who underwent stent implantation between 2005 and 2009, and compared the outcomes between patients

Vorapaxar, a platelet thrombin-receptor antagonist, in medically managed patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome: results from the TRACER trial.

This study characterized a medically managed population in a non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS) cohort and evaluated prognosis and outcomes of vorapaxar vs. placebo.

Electrocardiographic Findings in Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy: ECG Evolution and Its Difference from the ECG of Acute Coronary Syndrome.

Electrocardiogram (ECG) manifestations of takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) produce ST-segment elevation or T-wave inversion, mimicking acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We describe the ECG manifestation of TC, including ECG evolution, and its different points from ACS.

ST elevation in ECG lead aVR signals severe acute left main coronary artery disease.

Patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome are commonly assessed by acute physicians on arrival in hospital. Although most will recognise the typical ECG features of ST elevation myocardial infarction, the significance of ST elevation in lead aVR may not always be appreciated. This case series describes 6 cases in which this ECG abnormality was the predominant feature in patients whose subsequent angiogram revealed severe acute left main coronary artery disease. The importance of early referral of such...

The prospective register study of domestic tirofiban for clinical application in acute coronary syndrome.

To evaluate the current clinical application of domestic tirofiban in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and to explore its safety profile focused on the common causes and correlation factors for the hemorrhagic events.

Herpes Zoster Infection Associated With Acute Coronary Syndrome: A Population-based Retrospective Cohort Study.

This study determined the risk of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) associated with herpes zoster infection.

New oral anticoagulants - will they be used with antiplatelet drugs in patients with atrial fibrillation after acute coronary syndrome?

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequent indication for oral anticoagulation. Dual antiplatelet treatment with aspirin and clopidogrel is an antithrombotic treatment recommended after acute coronary syndrome and/or coronary artery stenting. The evidence for optimal antiplatelet therapy for patients who underwent a long-term treatment based on oral anticoagulation is strong. A direct thrombin inhibitor, dabigatran, as well as direct factor X inhibitors, apixaban and rivaroxaban, are now being commonly u...

Acute Coronary Syndrome among Older Patients: A Review.

Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of mortality worldwide. Due to advances in medicine in the last few decades, life expectancy has increased resulting in an aging population in developed and developing countries. Acute coronary syndrome causes greater morbidity and mortality in this group of older patients, which appears to be due to age-related co-morbidities. This review examines the incidence and prevalence of acute coronary syndrome among older patients, examines current treatment strategies,...

Acute coronary syndrome in an intensive care unit of a tertiary care centre: the spectrum and coronary risk factors.

Introduction: Acute coronary syndrome is the major leading cause for coronary care unit admission. Its spectrum comprises a variety of disorders including unstable angina, non ST elevation and ST elevation myocardial infarction. Its spectrum and incidence is crucial as a part of need assessment of cardiac catheterization laboratories. Methods: An observational study was designed to study the spectrum of acute coronary syndrome and associated coronary heart disease risk factors in subjects admitted in intens...

External coronary artery compression due to prosthetic valve bacterial endocarditis.

Acute coronary syndromes in the setting of infective endocarditis may be the result of coronary compression secondary to periannular aortic valve complications, coronary embolism, obstruction of the coronary ostium due to a large vegetation, coronary atherosclerosis, and severe aortic insufficiency. External coronary artery compression as a result of infective endocarditis is a rare and lethal finding with few reported cases available in the medical literature. We present a rare occurrence of an acute coron...

Clinical Features, Use of Evidence-Based Therapies, and Cardiovascular Outcomes Among Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease Following Non-ST-Elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular events following acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The underlying pathobiology and optimal treatments for this population continue to be evaluated.

Optimal coronary artery bypass grafting strategy for acute coronary syndrome.

Conventional coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using cardiopulmonary bypass and cardiac arrest is associated with higher mortality and morbidity rates in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients undergoing surgery. Although off-pump CABG (OPCAB) is beneficial for high-risk patients, its efficacy for ACS is unknown, with on-pump beating CABG an adjunctive method. We investigated the effects of OPCAB and on-pump beating CABG for ACS.
