OBJECTIVE To explore the effects of intensive antiplatelet therapy for patients with high on-treatment platelet reactivity (HPR) after coronary stent implantation. METHODS Between March 2009 and February 2011, a total of 3316 consecutive acute coronary syndrome patients undergoing drug-eluting stent implanting from 3 hospitals were enrolled. Among them,(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular stent-graft treatment has emerged as an alternative for patients with type B aortic dissection (AD), either at acute or chronic phase, in selected patients. This study aimed to investigate the results of endovascular stent-graft repair for acute and chronic type B AD. METHODS From May 2002 to July 2007, 67 patients with type B AD(More)
AIMS To assess the immediate and long-term outcomes of transcatheter closure of ventricular septal defect (VSD) in combination with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with VSD complicating acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS AND RESULTS Data were prospectively collected from 35 AMI patients who underwent attempted transcatheter(More)
OBJECTIVES The phenotypic modulation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) plays a central role in the pathogenesis of arteriosclerosis. The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of the cellular repressor of E1A-activated genes (CREG) at the transcriptional and protein level in human internal thoracic artery smooth muscle cells (HITASY),(More)
BACKGROUND Rapid recanalization of infarct-related artery (IRA) has become the major target during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (MI), but strategy for treatment of non-IRA lesions in this setting remains unclear. This study aimed to compare long-term effects between PCI for IRA only(More)
OBJECTIVE To Compare the efficacy and safety of Rapamycin (Cypher) and Paclitaxel (TAXUS) eluting stents for multi-vessel coronary diseases. METHODS From June 2003 to December 2004, a total of 416 patients with multi-vessel coronary diseases were randomly treated with Rapamycin (n = 210) and Paclitaxel (n = 206) eluting stents. Patients with left main(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation remains controversial. The primary aim of our study was to evaluate the impact of optimal DAPT duration on bleeding events between 6 and 12 months after biodegradable polymer-coated DES implantation. The secondary aim is to determine the(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies reported that percutaneous coronary intervention with stent implantation was safe and feasible for the treatment of left main coronary artery (LMCA) disease in select patients. However, it is unclear whether drug-eluting stents (DESs) have better outcomes in patients with LMCA disease compared with bare-metal stent (BMS) during(More)
BACKGROUND Data on the efficacy and safety of drug-eluting stent (DES) for treatment of multiple coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesions are scanty. The aim of the present study was to compare the long-term outcomes of DES versus bare metal stent (BMS) implantation for multiple coronary CTO lesions. METHODS We analyzed 188 patients who underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Natural disasters have been frequent in recent years. Effective treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease following natural disasters is an unsolved problem. We aimed to develop a novel miniature mobile cardiac catheterization laboratory (Mini Mobile Cath Lab) to provide emergency interventional services for patients with critical(More)
