REDUCE shows non-inferiority of short versus long DAPT in acute coronary syndrome

BJC Staff

Abstract

The COMBO™ dual therapy stent REDUCE (Short-term Dual Anti Platelet Therapy in Patients with ACS Treated with the COMBO Dual-therapy Stent), a physician-initiated, prospective, multi-centre, randomised study, was conducted in 36 hospitals in Europe and Asia, enrolling a total of 1,496 ACS patients. The study was designed to demonstrate non-inferiority of a strategy of short-term (three months) dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) compared to standard 12-month DAPT in patients with ACS treated with a dual-therapy stent. The stent used in the study COMBO™ (OrbusNeich) is a sirolimus-eluting stent with an abluminal biodegradable polymer matrix,

ESC 2017: RE-DUAL PCI shows benefits for dabigatran

BJC staff

Abstract

Approximately 20–30% of patients with AF, who are continuously taking an oral anticoagulant to reduce their risk of AF-related stroke, have coexisting coronary artery disease and may require PCI. The current practice of administering triple therapy with warfarin and two antiplatelet agents in patients with AF after a PCI is associated with high rates of major bleeding. RE-DUAL PCI tested an alternative treatment strategy: dual therapy with dabigatran and a single antiplatelet agent (P2Y12 inhibitor). Selected for one of the meeting’s hotline sessions and simultaneously published in the New England Journal of Medicine (https://doi.org/10.

News from the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2010

Abstract

Highlights of the American Heart Association 2010 meeting held in November 2010, in Chicago, USA, included a breakthrough for the treatment of resistant hypertension, and another oral anticoagulant that could be used instead of warfarin in atrial fibrillation patients, without the need for monitoring. RAFT: CRT reduces deaths and hospitalisations in mild heart failure Adding cardiac-resynchronisation therapy (CRT) to implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and medication, led to a reduction in deaths and heart failure hospitalistions among patients with mild-to-moderate symptoms of heart failure in the RAFT (Resynchronisation-Defibrilla

Abstract

New pocket-sized visualisation tool This new pocket-sized visualisation tool provides ultrasound technology at the point-of-care. Similar in size to a mobile phone and weighing less than one pound, it can give high quality colour images enabling physicians to take a quick look inside the body and detect disease earlier. Vscan™ is marketed by GE Healthcare and has received the CE Mark by the European Union. Heart failure report published A comprehensive review of the quality of heart failure care in England Bridging the quality gap: heart failure, has been published by The Health Foundation. It highlights that prevention is key to imp

New ‘healing’ stent looks promising

BJCardio editorial team

Abstract

Table 1. Results at 10 months In the current study, the GenousTM stent was associated with significantly fewer major adverse cardiac events (MACE) than the TaxusTMor CypherTM drug-eluting stents. The study, presented at the recent Italian Society of Invasive Cardiology by Dr Federico Piscione (Federico II University of Naples, Italy) involved 195 high-risk patients who received either a GenousTM, TaxusTM or CypherTM stent. Dual antiplatelet therapy was given for one month to the patients receiving a GenousTM stent and for nine months to those given one of the drug-eluting stents. “GenousTM is a viable alternative to drug-eluting stents, whi
