  • Primary Angioplasty: A Practical Guide: ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction Networks and Logistics: Rural and Urban [BOOK]
    Springer: SingaporeWatson TJ, Ong PJL, … Tcheng JESomaratne JB, Stewart JT, … Webster MWBOOK
  • The facilities and expertise required for primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) of the infarct-related artery (IRA) in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are only available at a limited number of hospitals. Fibrinolytic therapy, on the other hand, is more widely deliverable. This creates two distinct reperfusion choices: PPCI or a pharmacoinvasive strategy. The f…
  • Primary PCI versus pharmacoinvasive strategy for ST elevation myocardial infarction. [Journal Article]
    Int J Cardiol Heart Vasc 2018; 21:87-93Helal AM, Shaheen SM, … Allam LE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pharmacoinvasive strategy resulted in effective reperfusion and smaller infarction size in patients with early STEMI who could not undergo primary PCI within 2 h after the first medical contact. This can provide a wide time window for PCI when the application of primary PCI within the optimal time limit is not possible. However, it was associated with a slightly increased risk of minor bleeding.
  • A Narrative Review on Thrombolytics in Advanced CKD: Is it an Evidence-Based Therapy? [Review]
    Cardiovasc Drugs Ther 2018; 32(5):463-475Burlacu A, Artene B, Covic A
  • CONCLUSIONS: The impact of TT on the outcomes of advanced CKD patients is poorly understood to date, with scarce data available in current guidelines and conflicting results from observational studies. Until evidence-based data from RCTs will be obtained, the clinical challenge of maximizing benefits for this high-risk subgroup lays in the hands of practicing clinicians.
