BACKGROUND Hemodynamic protamine reactions with heparin reversal during cardiac surgery are common and associated with adverse outcomes. As an alternative to protamine, the authors examined heparinase I reversal of heparin after aortocoronary bypass graft surgery. METHODS In a randomized, double-blind, double-dummy trial, 167 on- and off-pump(More)
AIMS We sought to assess the incidence of and prognostic factors for heart failure (HF) hospitalization among survivors of high-risk acute myocardial infarction (MI). METHODS AND RESULTS We assessed the risk of an initial hospitalization for HF in 11 040 stable MI patients (no major non-fatal cardiovascular events or deaths within 45 days of(More)
We describe 2 patients with unusual white matter cystic dilations, which could correspond to widening of the perivascular spaces. They underwent morphologic MR imaging with tractography, functional MR imaging (fMRI), and neuropsychological evaluation. fMRI examination showed no functional reorganization of cortical areas. Tractography showed an apparent(More)
AIMS We sought to characterize the outcomes of patients with a prior percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) who presented with a non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS AND RESULTS We analysed the 30 and 180 day outcomes of 3012 patients with prior PCI and 21 154 patients without prior PCI enrolled in three randomized ACS trials(More)
OBJECTIVES This analysis sought to investigate the complementary effect of thienopyridine pretreatment and platelet glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa integrin blockade in coronary stent intervention. BACKGROUND Definitive evidence supporting combined antiplatelet therapy consisting of thienopyridine pretreatment and GP IIb/IIIa receptor blockade in patients(More)
