IMPORTANCE The current recommendation is for at least 12 months of dual antiplatelet therapy after implantation of a drug-eluting stent. However, the optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy with specific types of drug-eluting stents remains unknown. OBJECTIVE To assess the clinical noninferiority of 3 months (short-term) vs 12 months (long-term) of(More)
BACKGROUND Atherosclerotic coronary artery disease (CAD) is a multifactorial process that appears to be caused by the interaction of environmental risk factors with multiple predisposing genes. It is nowadays accepted that increased levels of DNA damage induced by xenobiotics play an important role in the early phases of atherogenesis. Therefore, in this(More)
The association between coronary heart disease and thrombocytopenic purpura is rare and poses some difficulties when myocardial revascularization is necessary. We report a case with this association and significant coronary impairment, which was percutaneously treated with stent implantation.
BACKGROUND Current recommendations for antithrombotic therapy after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation include prolonged dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and clopidogrel ≥12 months. However, the impact of such a regimen for all patients receiving any DES system remains unclear based on scientific evidence available to date. Also, several(More)
Serum complement levels (UE50, C3, C4, act. C3, C1q) were determined in 75 healthy subjects and 130 cancer patients undergoing treatment. The results were correlated with statistical analysis. The patients were divided into the following groups: a) with local tumor; b) with tumor in complete remission; c) with tumor in incomplete remission; d) stationary.(More)
