BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Limited data are available on patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and their long-term outcomes in the Arabian Gulf countries. We evaluated the clinical features, management, in-hospital, and long-term outcomes of in such a population. DESIGN AND SETTING A 9-month prospective, multicenter study conducted in 65 hospitals(More)
Aneurysm of the mitral valve (AMV) is rarely reported. The etiology of this unusual pathology is commonly attributed to aortic valve endocarditis (AVE) with aortic regurgitation (AR) or connective tissue disease. We present two recent cases of AMV with good correlation between pre-operative trans-esophageal echocardiography (TEE), intra-operative real-time(More)
Left main coronary artery dissection complicating selective coronary angiography is uncommon. Moreover, aortic root dissection associated with coronary intervention is underreported and may require urgent surgical intervention. During percutaneous coronary angioplasty of a catheter-induced left main coronary artery dissection, retrograde dissection of the(More)
Intracoronary stenting has been shown to improve acute and long-term clinical results compared with coronary angioplasty. However, clinical outcome after medium Palmaz biliary (PB) stent implantation in very large native coronary arteries (> 4 mm in diameter) is unknown. This study evaluated restenosis and long-term clinical outcome after PB stenting in(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the prognostic value of baseline estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in Saudi patients presenting with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), and its impact on hospital therapies. METHODS The STEMI patients with a baseline serum Creatinine enrolled in the SPACE (Saudi Project for Assessment of Coronary Events) registry(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize risk profile of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients in different age groups and compare management provided to in-hospital outcome.
