The dosage of the subcutaneous low molecular weight heparin enoxaparin in unstable angina patients undergoing coronary angiogram and coronary angioplasty depends clearly on the renal function. It should be significantly reduced to 64% of the standard dose (1 mg/kg per 12 h) in patients with severe renal failure (creatinine clearance<30 ml/min) to provide a(More)
OBJECTIVES We tested the hypothesis that different anticoagulant treatments may produce different platelet effects and von Willebrand factor (vWf) release in unstable angina. BACKGROUND The early increase of vWf has been reported to be a risk factor for adverse outcome in unstable angina. Anticoagulant drugs play a key role in stabilization of unstable(More)
BACKGROUND Subcutaneous low-molecular-weight (LMW) heparins can effectively replace unfractionated heparin in patients with unstable angina or non-Q-wave myocardial infarction. However, the optimal anticoagulation strategy for these patients when they require cardiac catheterization is still unclear. Therefore, we evaluated a new and simple strategy of(More)
AIM to assess the safety and feasibility of combined granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and erythropoietin (EPO) based intracoronary peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) therapy in patients with recent myocardial infarction (RMI) who had successful reperfusion therapy with drug-eluting stent. METHODS a total of 18 patients diagnosed with(More)
Chronic total occlusion of coronary artery disease predominantly present with recurrent angina or myocardial infarction. Long-term survival myocardial function depends on the well-developed collaterals. We report on a 62 year-old man with chronic total occlusion in the left circumfl ex artery treated with percutaneous coronary intervention using retrograde(More)
AIM to investigate hemostatic parameter changes, such as platelet aggregation, blood and plasma viscosity, prothrombin time, APTT, CRP and fibrinogen, before and after administration of stem cell therapy. METHODS a total of 24 patients were enrolled. Peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) were harvested and injected into the infarct-related artery after 5(More)
