Randomized trial of primary PCI with or without routine manual thrombectomy.
- Sanjit S. Jolly, J. Cairns, +30 authors V. Dz̆avík
- The New England journal of medicine
- 8 April 2015
BACKGROUND During primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), manual thrombectomy may reduce distal embolization and thus improve microvascular perfusion. Small trials have suggested that… Expand
Drug-eluting stents in elderly patients with coronary artery disease (SENIOR): a randomised single-blind trial
BACKGROUND Elderly patients regularly receive bare-metal stents (BMS) instead of drug-eluting stents (DES) to shorten the duration of double antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). The aim of this study was to… Expand
Reperfusion therapy for ST elevation acute myocardial infarction 2010/2011: current status in 37 ESC countries.
AIMS Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) is the preferred reperfusion therapy in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We conducted this study to evaluate the contemporary status… Expand
Complete Revascularization with Multivessel PCI for Myocardial Infarction.
BACKGROUND In patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the culprit lesion reduces the risk of cardiovascular death or myocardial… Expand

AIM To analyze the association of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase polymorphisms (MTHFR-677 and MTHFR-1298) with occlusive artery disease and deep venous thrombosis in Macedonians. METHODS We… Expand
Radial Artery Occlusion After Transradial Interventions: A Systematic Review and Meta‐Analysis
- M. Rashid, C. Kwok, +8 authors M. Mamas
- Journal of the American Heart Association
- 1 January 2016
Background Radial artery occlusion (RAO) may occur posttransradial intervention and limits the radial artery as a future access site, thus precluding its use as an arterial conduit. In this study, we… Expand
Stroke in the TOTAL trial: a randomized trial of routine thrombectomy vs. percutaneous coronary intervention alone in ST elevation myocardial infarction.
AIMS TOTAL (N = 10 732), a randomized trial of routine manual thrombectomy vs. percutaneous coronary intervention alone in ST elevation myocardial infarction, showed no difference in the primary… Expand
Prevalence and outcome of patients with cancer and acute coronary syndrome undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention: a BleeMACS substudy
- M. Iannaccone, F. D’Ascenzo, +46 authors S. Kedev
- European heart journal. Acute cardiovascular care
- 1 October 2018
Background: The prevalence and outcome of patients with cancer that experience acute coronary syndrome (ACS) have to be determined. Methods and results: The BleeMACS project is a multicentre… Expand
Association between 22 cytokine gene polymorphisms and dilated cardiomyopathy in Macedonian patients.
BACKGROUND Inflammation is an important component in the pathogenesis of many cardiovascular diseases and one of the commonest mechanisms in cardiomyopathy. There have been several studies on the… Expand
A novel approach to reduce radial artery occlusion after transradial catheterization: Postprocedural/prehemostasis intra‐arterial nitroglycerin
- S. Dharma, S. Kedev, Tejas Patel, F. Kiemeneij, I. Gilchrist
- Catheterization and cardiovascular interventions…
- 1 April 2015
To evaluate whether administration of nitroglycerin through the sheath at the end of a transradial procedure might preserve the patency of the radial artery. Background: Despite the increasing… Expand
