BACKGROUND The role of carotid artery stenting (CAS) when compared with carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is controversial, with recent trials showing an increased risk of harm with CAS. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the periprocedural and intermediate to long-term benefits and harms of CAS compared with CEA. DATA SOURCES AND STUDY SELECTION PubMed, EMBASE, and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been associated with bleeding complications and may affect the risk of hemorrhagic stroke through inhibition of platelet cyclooxygenase-1. We performed a population-based case-control study to estimate the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and ischemic stroke(More)
Restenosis is a serious occurrence that can lead not only to recurrent angina and repeat revascularisation but also to acute coronary syndromes. Drug-eluting stents revolutionised interventional cardiology owing to their pronounced ability to reduce restenosis compared with bare-metal stents. Attention has now shifted to safety of these devices because of(More)
Percutaneous coronary intervention with bivalirudin plus bail-out glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors has been shown to be as effective as unfractionated heparin plus routine glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors in preventing cardiac ischemic events, but with a lower bleeding risk. It is unknown whether bivalirudin would have the same beneficial effects if(More)
INTRODUCTION Prior studies suggested that a routine invasive approach in the management of non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) is beneficial in men, but the data are less conclusive in women. One study conducted exclusively in women found that routine invasive therapy was associated with a markedly increased risk of major bleeding. This(More)

INTRODUCTION Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is recommended by society guidelines for assessment of the hemodynamic significance of intermediate coronary lesions when non-invasive evidence of myocardial ischemia is unavailable. However, the prevalence of FFR usage in current practice and how FFR values impact revascularization decisions are not well known. (More)
Elevated nighttime blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR), increased BP and HR variability, and altered diurnal variations of BP and HR (nighttime dipping and morning surge) in patients with systemic hypertension are each associated with increased adverse cardiovascular events. However, there are no reports on the effect of hypertension treatment on these(More)
BACKGROUND It is difficult to accurately determine prognosis of patients with hypertension and chronic stable coronary artery disease (CAD). Our aim was to construct a risk score for predicting important adverse events in this population. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients with hypertension and chronic stable CAD enrolled in the INternational(More)
