Inpatient Mortality and 30-Day Readmission Rates Associated with Troponin Testing in Patients without Acute Myocardial Infarction.
Troponin values above the threshold established to diagnose acute myocardial infarction (AMI; >99 percentile) are commonly detected in patients with diagnoses other than AMI. The objective of this study is to compare inpatient...Read More
Gut microbial taxa as potential predictive biomarkers for acute coronary syndrome and post-STEMI cardiovascular events.
Plasma trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) is associated with coronary atherosclerotic plaque and cardiovascular disease risk, but associations between gut microbes in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and post-ST-segment elevation...Read More
Clinical observation of noncoronary cardiac abnormalities in Chinese children with Kawasaki disease.
Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute, self-limited vasculitis. Coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) serves as a major contributor to the long-term prognosis of KD. In addition, acute KD usually also leads to several kinds of noncoronary...Read More
This study aims to investigate the protective effects of the Bauhinia championii (BC) against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R)-induced injury in an isolated heart model. Langendorff-perfused C57BL/6JNarl mice hearts were performed...Read More
Data-driven discovery of changes in clinical code usage over time: a case-study on changes in cardiovascular disease recording in two English electronic health records databases (2001-2015).
To demonstrate how data-driven variability methods can be used to identify changes in disease recording in two English electronic health records databases between 2001 and 2015.Repeated cross-sectional analysis that applied...Read More
Higher Long-Term Mortality with Carotid Artery Stenting in Asymptomatic Male Compared to Female Patients in the Southeastern Vascular Study Group.
To review the sex differences among symptomatic and asymptomatic patients treated with carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid stenting (CAS) in the Southeastern Vascular Study Group (SEVSG), a regional quality group of the...Read More
Differences in presentation and clinical outcomes between left or right bundle branch block and ST segment elevation in patients with acute myocardial infarction.
In patients with acute myocardial infarction, the presence of a left bundle branch block or right bundle branch block may be associated with worse prognosis compared to isolated ST segment elevation. However, specificities in...Read More
Identifying critically important cardiovascular outcomes for trials in hemodialysis: an international survey with patients, caregivers and health professionals.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major contributor to morbidity and mortality in people on hemodialysis (HD). Cardiovascular outcomes are reported infrequently and inconsistently across trials in HD. This study aimed to...Read More
