Coronary disease

December 25, 2021
The rising burden of CAD in low- and middle-income countries like Nigeria is a result of the epidemiological transition from communicable to non- communicable diseases. The system of care for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is evolving and constrained by a lack of prehospital emergency services, prolonged intervention times, and low patient eligibility

On December 9, the  American Heart Association (AHA) and American College of Cardiology (ACC) jointly released a clinical practice guideline for coronary artery revascularization in patients with coronary artery disease.  The top ten take-home messages are:

This video presents in-situ BITA for the whole heart using OPCAB technique.
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. 
October 27, 2021
The authors describe a direct reimplantation technique that does not involve aortotomy or pericardial patch of the aorta in patients with malignant right anomalous coronary arteries.
October 21, 2021
A large randomised double-blinded trial reporting a considerable benefit ( 0.79 HR with very small p and supporting confidence intervals) of the Boehringer SGLPT-2 inhibitor regardless of presence of formal diagnosis of diabetes.
September 7, 2021
The authors demonstrate their technique for total arterial myocardial revascularization using bilateral internal thoracic arteries and the right gastroepiploic artery as in-situ grafts for the treatment of three-vessel disease.
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!
April 30, 2021
The "Cape Town Declaration On Access to Cardiac Surgery in the Developing World" was published in August 2018, intending to signal a commitment of the global cardiac surgery and cardiology communities to improving care for the 33 million patients affected by rheumatic heart disease.
