Acute management of unstable angina and non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction

Fernando Morita Fernandes Silva, Antonio Eduardo Pereira Pesaro, Marcelo Franken, Mauricio Wajngarten

Non-ST segment elevation coronary syndrome usually results from instability of an atherosclerotic plaque, with subsequent activation of platelets and several coagulation factors. Its treatment aims to reduce the ischemic pain, limiting myocardial damage and decreasing mortality. Several antiplatelet and anticoagulation agents have been proven useful, and new drugs have been added to the therapeutic armamentarium in the search for higher anti-ischemic efficacy and lower bleeding rates. Despite the advances, the mortality, infarction and readmission rates remain high.

Objective:To evaluate the compliance rates to quality of care indicators along the implementation of an acute myocardial infarction clinical practice guideline.METHODS:A clinical guideline for acute myocardial infarction was introduced on March 1st, 2005. Patients admitted for acute myocardial infarction from March 1st, 2005 to December 31st, 2012 (n=1,431) were compared to patients admitted for acute myocardial infarction before the implementation of the protocol (n=306). Compliance rates to quality of care indicators (ASA prescription on hospital admission and discharge, betablockers on […]

Vascular calcification: pathophysiology and clinical implications

Marcel Liberman, Antonio Eduardo Pereira Pesaro, Luciana Simão Carmo, Carlos Vicente Serrano Jr

Vascular calcification in coronary artery disease is gaining importance, both in scientific research and in clinical and imaging applications. The calcified plaque is considered the most relevant form of atherosclerosis within the coronary artery tree and is frequently a challenge for percutaneous intervention. Recent studies showed that plaque calcification is dynamic and is strictly related to the degree of vascular inflammation. Several inflammatory factors produced during the different phases of atherosclerosis induce the expression and activation of osteoblastic cells located […]
