Myocardial Infarction

June 23, 2022
This scientific statement is a granular contribution to a major cardiovascular issue, illuminating nuances of the "generally recognized as safe" (GRAS) FDA designation. One would expect the relevant Thoracic Associations in North America and Europe to contribute to this debate.

An interesting brief editorial on an experiment revisiting renal denervation as a panacea to cardiovascular disease
November 15, 2021
Interesting in its candour mini-series of partial arterial revascularisation by left thoracotomy. The perioperative graft failure is delt in some detail.
November 9, 2021
A good-size Terumo-sponsored RCT that is set to impact on decisions to discontinue DAPT early after PCI with absorbable stent, a change that will somehow decrease the surgical risk of bleeding in the event of salvage CABG. 
June 15, 2021
Fascinating confirmation of null hypotheses including bleeding complications and survival in a Pennsylvanian cohort study, despite the easily predictable previous PCI, hock, and IABP prevalence in the emergency group. The statistical model is elaborate and complex. Perhaps a randomized trial could now be justified!
February 21, 2021
An editorial that may herald the decrease in aspirinization and the rise of ticagrelor monotherapy in Percutaneous stenting of coronary arteries.
December 4, 2020
A brief and readable editorial on the United Kingdom prespective on the global impact of the pandemic to the delivery of cardiovascular care, attempting a semi-quantitative economic appraisal of the problem.
November 17, 2020
A latge RCT of the first myosin inhibitor in severe chronic heart failure: somewhat difficult to interpret results, as deaths were slightly higher in the intervention group while there was no 'significant' benefit in cardiovascular deaths.
October 26, 2020
Within the limitations of a meta-analysis, a useful work advancing that PCI may have a hitherto masked or hidden mortality
October 12, 2020
An analysis, from the cardiology viewpoint, of the MI nomenclature issues around the external validity of the EXCEL trial that undermined the EACTS support of the relevant 2018 guidelines
