Ranolazine is approved in the United States and Europe for chronic stable angina. Microvascular angina (MVA) is defined as angina with no obstructive coronary artery disease.
A patient with a history of Prinzmetal angina, refractory ventricular fibrillation, cardiac arrest with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, and obesity presented to the emergency department at 17 weeks gestational age with a chief complaint of angina and multiple episodes of defibrillation. A T3/4 thoracic epidural was placed to assess the effectiveness of a partial chemical sympathectomy in alleviating symptoms of angina as well as decreasing the amount of defibrillation episodes. Once this proved t...
Unstable angina (UA) is a common cause of hospital admission; risk stratification helps determine strategies for treatment.
Angina pectoris continues to affect multitudes of people around the world. In this study the management of stable angina pectoris in private healthcare settings in South Africa (SA) was investigated. In particular, we reviewed the frequency of medical versus surgical interventions when used as first-line therapy.
A cohort analysis using UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) was performed to compare the effects of bisoprolol, other β-blockers, and drugs other than β-blockers on the long-term risk of mortality and cardiovascular events in patients with angina. Adult patients first diagnosed with angina from 2000 to 2014, with ≥365 days of registration to first angina diagnosis and initiating monotherapies of bisoprolol, other β-blockers, or drugs other than β-blockers within 6 months of angina diagnosis ...
On pump beating/non-beating coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG) has been compared in patients with unstable angina and/or severe left ventricular dysfunction. There is scarce evidence regarding the beneficial use of on-pump beating CABG in patients with stable angina and normal left ventricular function. Our aim was to study the postoperative results using both techniques in this group of patients.
To study adherence to therapy with statins and its relation to development of cardio-vascular complications (CVC) in patients with stable angina after elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) at five-year observation.
Non-obstructive coronary artery disease (NOCAD) on coronary angiography is a common finding in patients with stable angina. Angina in NOCAD patients is thought to be caused by endothelial dysfunction of the epicardial coronary arteries and/or the microvasculature. Treatment is empiric, and 30% of patients remain symptomatic in spite of therapy. It is well known that physical exercise can improve endothelial function. The goal of this review was to assess the current literature on effects of physical exercis...
The REGENT-VSEL trial demonstrated a neutral effect of transendocardial injection of autologous bone marrow (BM)-derived CD133+ in regard to myocardial ischemia. The current sub-analysis of the REGENT VSEL trial aims to assess the effect stem cell therapy has on quality of life (QoL) in patients with refractory angina.
To compare the treatment outcome in patients with Ludwig's angina in their early stages who received intravenous antibiotics alone with those who received surgical decompression and intravenous antibiotics.
Predicting the Benefits of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention on 1-Year Angina and Quality of Life in Stable Ischemic Heart Disease: Risk Models From the COURAGE Trial (Clinical Outcomes Utilizing Revascularization and Aggressive Drug Evaluation).
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a therapy to reduce angina and improve quality of life in patients with stable ischemic heart disease. However, it is unclear whether the quality of life after PCI is more dependent on the PCI or other patient-related factors. To address this question, we created models to predict angina and quality of life 1 year after PCI and medical therapy.
Previous studies have demonstrated that intramyocardial human CD34+ cells may relieve symptoms and improve clinical outcomes in chronic refractory angina unresponsive to optimal medical therapy or not amenable to revascularization.
Ischaemic heart disease is a major cause of death and disability worldwide, while angina represents its most common symptom. It is estimated that approximately 9 million patients in the USA suffer from angina and its treatment is challenging, thus the strategy to improve the management of chronic stable angina is a priority. Angina might be the result of different pathologies, ranging from the "classical" obstruction of a large coronary artery to alteration of the microcirculation or coronary artery spasm. ...
Trimetazidine (TMZ) is an anti-ischemic metabolic agent that has been shown to be efficacious in angina treatment, both in monotherapy and in combination. A new formulation of TMZ modified-release (MR) 80 mg was developed, which is to be taken once daily (od), instead of twice daily (bid) for the currently available TMZ MR 35 mg, with the aim of simplifying the medication regimen.
Although the Seattle Angina Questionnaire (SAQ) has been widely used to assess disease-specific health status in patients with ischemic heart disease, it was originally developed in a predominantly male population and its validity in women has been questioned.
This study aims at assessing NF-kB activity in unstable angina (UA) patients free of symptoms after a 1 year follow-up (1YFU). Plasma oxidized low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL), circulating NF-kB, Interleukin 6 (IL-6) and Interleukin 1β (IL-1β), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), as markers of oxidative stress and inflammation and plasma double-stranded DNA (ds-DNA), as marker of Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs), were measured in 23 of the previously enrolled 27 UA patients. These measurem...
Despite major advances in managing coronary artery disease and continuous research on alternative techniques to enhance myocardial perfusion and reduce symptoms, coronary artery disease is still one of the leading causes of adult disability worldwide. Cardiac shock-wave therapy (CSWT) has shown promising results in the amelioration of myocardial ischemia in experimental studies; however, clinical results are limited to single-center, mostly uncontrolled and underpowered trials. The current study aimed to ev...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication of cardiac surgery, and early detection is difficult. This study was performed to determine the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and statistical performance of renal angina (RA) as an early predictor of AKI in an adult cardiac surgical patient population.
Postprandial hyperglycemia plays a pivotal role in cardiovascular disease. However, few studies have investigated associations between the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) and postprandial glucose levels in angina patients without known diabetes before coronary angiography.
Tongmai Yangxin Pill (TMYX) is a traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of angina and arrhythmia. Although its clinical application is extensive, and the curative effect is significant, little information is available on the molecular biological basis and therapeutic mechanism of TMYX for the treatment of stable angina. In this study, we analyzed serum samples of clinical patients collected from seven different clinical units in China after oral administration of TMYX using ultra-performance liquid ...
Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) is a noninvasive treatment recommended for patients with refractory angina pectoris (RAP), which generally includes 35 one-hour sessions over 7 weeks. No study has described how patients experience the time before, during, and between sessions, as well as the time after EECP treatment.
To provide information about the effectiveness and safety of Ginkgo Leaf Extract and Dipyridamole Injection (GD) as one adjuvant therapy for treating angina pectoris (AP) and to evaluate the relevant randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with meta-analysis.
Real-world outcomes in patients with chronic stable angina treated with ranolazine and other antianginal medications as second- or third-line therapy are limited. In a historical cohort study of veterans with chronic stable angina, we compared time with coronary revascularization procedures, hospitalizations, and 1-year healthcare costs between new-users of ranolazine versus conventional antianginals (i.e., calcium channel blockers, β blockers, or long-acting nitrates) as second- or third-line. Weighted re...
Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is an inflammatory marker, elevated in acute coronary syndromes (ACSs), especially in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) cases. This study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic power of MPO in AMI patients. MPO, creatine kinase (CK) MB, and Troponin I (cTn I) were performed for all study patients. Area under the curves (AUCs) and 95% confidence intervals (CI); P values of baseline levels of MPO for discriminating AMI patients from noncoronary chest pain (NCCP) patients, stable angina (SA) pa...
A 47-year-old man presented with angina pectoris complaints in the chest pain unit. Due to psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis he had been systemically treated for 4 years. Because of an increased cardiovascular risk profile, coronary heart disease (CHD) was suspected and an invasive coronary diagnosis was performed. In the cardiac catheterization, CHD could be detected and treated in the same session. The risk of CHD in patients with psoriasis is increased due to a higher incidence of risk factors but als...
