Effect of transcatheter (via femoral artery) aortic valve implantation on the platelet count and its consequences. Am J Cardiol, 111(11): 1619-24.
Decrease in blood platelet count has been described after percutaneous coronary intervention and surgical valve replacement, although no study has been performed in the setting of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The aim of this study was to address the incidence, mechanism, and impact of blood platelet count decrease after TAVI. One hundred forty-four consecutive patients (mean age 84 ± 7 years, 64 men) with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis who underwent TAVI from December ... [Abstract] [Full-text]
Screening for asymptomatic atrial fibrillation while monitoring the blood pressure at home: trial of regular versus irregular pulse for prevention of stroke (TRIPPS 2.0). Am J Cardiol, 111(11): 1598-601.
Asymptomatic atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common cause of strokes. Physician screening for AF has been recommended. Home screening for AF may increase the likelihood of detecting asymptomatic AF in patients at risk for stroke because of AF. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility and accuracy of screening for AF when taking home blood pressure (BP) measurements using an automatic AF-detecting BP monitor. Subjects aged >64 years or those with hypertension, diabetes, congestive ... [Abstract] [Full-text]

Rescue thrombolysis in the treatment of cardiac shock and acute stroke. Am J Emerg Med, 31(5): 891.e1-3.
The patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction are primarily managed with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or thrombolysis. It is well accepted that rescue PCI should be implemented in case of unsuccessful thrombolysis. However, the reverse, rescue thrombolysis, that is, administering of thrombolytic therapy in a patient in whom primary PCI fails, is not well defined. There are no available data about rescue thrombolysis so far. We represent a 43-year-old male patient with Buerger ... [Abstract] [Full-text]
