141. Coronary computed tomographic imaging in women: An expert consensus statement from the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography. (PubMed)

Coronary computed tomographic imaging in women: An expert consensus statement from the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography. This expert consensus statement from the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) provides an evidence synthesis on the use of computed tomography (CT) imaging for diagnosis and risk stratification of coronary artery disease in women. From large patient and population cohorts of asymptomatic women, detection of any coronary artery calcium (...) that identifies females with a 10-year atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk of >7.5% may more effectively triage women who may benefit from pharmacologic therapy. In addition to accurate detection of obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD), CT angiography (CTA) identifies nonobstructive atherosclerotic plaque extent and composition which is otherwise not detected by alternative stress testing modalities. Moreover, CTA has superior risk stratification when compared to stress testing in symptomatic

and compared this subgroup with true ACS patients. Of 2557 patients included, 9.0% were discharged with a non-ACS diagnosis such as nonspecific chest pain, myopericarditis, stress cardiomyopathy, hemodynamic disturbances, heart failure, myocardial, pulmonary or valvular disease, or others. Compared with true ACS patients, those with other diagnoses were younger, more often female, and had less cardiovascular risk factors. Both groups had comparable rates of nonchest pain presentation and similar (...) hemodynamic characteristics on admission. Non-ACS patients presented less often with Q waves or with ST-segment or T-wave changes and had a lower Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events score than true ACS patients. In-hospital (4.3 vs 4.0%, respectively, p = 0.834) and 6-month (5.4 vs 8.0%, respectively, p = 0.163) mortality rates were comparable in both groups. However, if patients in the non-ACS group were divided into subgroups with nonspecific chest pain (6.2% of total) or other diagnoses (2.8

B-type natriuretic peptide and high sensitive C-reactive protein predict 2-year all cause mortality in chest pain patients: a prospective observational study from Salta, Argentina. Several mechanisms are involved in the pathophysiology of the Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). We have addressed whether B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP) in admission samples may improve risk stratification in chest pain patients with suspected ACS.We included 982 patients (...) consecutively admitted with chest pain and suspected ACS at nine hospitals in Salta, Northern Argentina. Total and cardiac mortality were recorded during a 2-year follow up period. Patients were divided into quartiles according to BNP and hsCRP levels, respectively, and inter quartile differences in mortality were statistically evaluated applying univariate and multivariate analyses.119 patients died, and the BNP and hsCRP levels were significantly higher among these patients than in survivors

150. Novel Risk Markers and Risk Assessments for Cardiovascular Disease. (PubMed)

Novel Risk Markers and Risk Assessments for Cardiovascular Disease. The use of risk markers has transformed cardiovascular medicine, exemplified by the routine assessment of troponin, for both diagnosis and assessment of prognosis in patients with chest pain. Clinical risk factors form the basis for risk assessment of cardiovascular disease and the addition of biochemical, cellular, and imaging parameters offers further refinement. Identifying novel risk factors may allow greater risk (...) in a separate cohort in most cases. Risk markers related to atherosclerosis, thrombosis, inflammation, cardiac injury, and fibrosis are introduced in the context of their pathophysiology. Rapidly developing new areas, such as assessment of micro-RNA, are also explored. Subsequently the prognostic ability of these risk markers in coronary artery disease, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation is discussed in detail.© 2017 American Heart Association, Inc.

The logistic EuroSCORE is based on 12 covariates derived from 14,799 patients undergoing all types of cardiac operations (mostly coronary bypass) in 8 European countries in 1995.

Diagnostic value of coronary artery calcium scoring in low-intermediate risk patients evaluated in the emergency department for acute coronary syndrome. Early and accurate triage of patients with possible ischemic chest pain remains challenging in the emergency department because current risk stratification techniques have significant cost and limited availability. The aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic value of the coronary artery calcium score (CACS) for the detection (...) of obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) in low- to intermediate-risk patients evaluated in the emergency department for suspected acute coronary syndromes. A total of 225 patients presenting to the emergency department with acute chest pain and Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) scores <4 who underwent non-contrast- and contrast-enhanced coronary computed tomographic angiography were included. CACS was calculated from the noncontrast scan using the Agatston method. The prevalence

studies have investigated more sensitive and specific imaging modalities that can be used. Diastolic dysfunction occurs early following coronary artery occlusion and its detection is useful in confirming the diagnosis, risk stratification, and prognosis post-ACS. Cardiac magnetic resonance provides a single imaging modality for comprehensive evaluation of chest pain in the acute setting. In particular, cardiac magnetic resonance has many imaging techniques that assess diastolic dysfunction post (...) Cardiac magnetic resonance assessment of diastolic dysfunction in acute coronary syndrome Chest pain is an important presenting symptom. However, few cases of chest pain are diagnosed as acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in the acute setting. This results in frequent inappropriate discharge and major delay in treatment for patients with underlying ACS. The conventional methods of assessing ACS, which include electrocardiography and serological markers of infarct, can take time to manifest. Recent

Of these, 17% use chest pain as the sole criteria. For the diagnosis of NSTEMI, 58% use intervals ≥4 hours for a second troponin and 34% routinely risk stratify before troponin testing. For the diagnosis of noninfarction ischemia, the median percentage of patients (...) epidemiology study with the ED as the unit of analysis characterizing variability in the ACS evaluation across 62 diverse EDs.
