ABSTRACT Background Few publications have evaluated temporal trends and outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention in diabetic patients in the contemporary era. Our objective was to verify characteristics, procedural results and mortality of percutaneous coronary intervention in diabetic subjects in Brazil in the last 10 years. Methods We analyzed the percutaneous coronary interventions registered in the Brazilian National Registry of Cardiovascular Interventions (CENIC) of the Sociedade Brasileira de Hemodinâmica e Cardiologia Intervencionista , from 2006 to 2016, comparing three timeframes: 2006-2008, […]
ABSTRACT Background: Calcified coronary lesions are a complex angiographic scenario in the practice of percutaneous coronary intervention. The objective of this article was to present the temporal trends of the clinical and angiographic profile, and in-hospital outcomes of patients with calcified lesions. Methods: A retrospective study of 35,897 patients with coronary calcification included in the Central Nacional de Intervenções Cardiovasculares (CENIC) registry, from January 2006 to January 2016. The temporal trends of clinical, angiographic and procedural variables, as well as […]
ABSTRACT Background Percutaneous intervention for obstructive lesions of the unprotected left main coronary artery is complex. Choosing the vascular access can be decisive to a successful procedure. The objective of the present study was to describe the characteristics and hospital outcomes of patients with unprotected left main coronary artery disease and compare the radial and femoral access approaches. Methods Clinical and angiographic data, access routes and hospital outcomes of patients that have undergone percutaneous coronary intervention of the unprotected left […]
ABSTRACT Background As the population ages, the prevalence of diseases has increased, particularly that of coronary artery disease requiring treatment. The objective of this study was to assess the temporal evolution of percutaneous coronary intervention in octogenarians in Brazil. Methods Based on data from the Central Nacional de Intervenções Cardiovasculares (CENIC), we analyzed procedures carried out in patients aged 80 years and over, from June 2006 to March 2016, classified into three time ranges: 2006-2008, 2009-2011 and 2012-2016. We assessed […]
ABSTRACT Background: Currently, percutaneous coronary intervention is the most widely used revascularization method to treat coronary artery disease. The objective of this study was to analyze the characteristics and results of percutaneous coronary interventions performed in different Brazilian regions over the last decade. Methods: A retrospective study including procedures recorded in the Central Nacional de Intervenções Cardiovasculares (CENIC) registry, between 2006 and 2016, representing the five regions of the country. Results: A total of 176,780 patients who underwent 191,127 procedures, […]
ABSTRACT Background: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in large vessels has peculiarities that have been little explored in studies. Our objective was to evaluate temporal trends over the last 10 years and in-hospital outcomes for this population. Methods: Using data from the National Center for Cardiovascular Interventions (CENIC), procedures performed between June 2006 and March 2016 were analyzed. The data were divided into three periods (2006-2008, 2009-2011 and 2012-2016). Clinical, angiographic, therapeutic and in-hospital outcome data were considered. Results: The sample […]
ABSTRACT Single coronary artery is a rare congenital anomaly of the coronary arteries and may be associated with sudden cardiac death. We report a case of single coronary artery associated with multivessel atherosclerotic coronary disease that was successfully treated with percutaneous coronary interventions with drug-eluting stents.
ABSTRACT Background: Coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) is present in approximately 15% of coronary angiographies, and the success rates of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) range from 55 to 80%. The radial access has been increasingly used, even in more complex scenarios, such as CTO. The objective was to compare the profile and results of CTO patients undergoing PCI by radial or femoral access, and evaluate the independent predictors of in-hospital mortality. Methods: Data from the CENIC registry on patients submitted […]
