Spontaneous recanalization of a completely occluded saphenous vein graft two months following acute myocardial infarction with persistent one year patency

Acute myocardial infarction resulting from saphenous vein graft occlusion occurs not infrequently in patients who have undergone coronary artery bypass graft surgery. In this case report, we present a novel case of spontaneous recanalization of a thrombotic graft occlusion in a patient who presented with a subacute myocardial infarction. The patient was treated medically with ...

Improvement in the regulation of the vitamin K antagonist acenocoumarol after a standard initial dose regimen: prospective validation of a prescription model

Background In a retrospective study we have developed a model which determines the dose of acenocoumarol based on the age of the patient and on the first INR obtained after a standard initial loading dose. The group of patients of this study was used as the control group of the present study. Aim The aim of this study was to prospectively validate the model and to assess whether ...

Routine upstream versus selective down stream use of tirofiban in non-ST elevation myocardial infarction patients scheduled for early invasive therapy; a randomized comparison

Background Despite their proven beneficial effects and inclusion in the guidelines, glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIA blockers are underused in daily practice in patients with non ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE ACS). This study combines the data from two randomized controlled trials, comparing routine upstream versus selective down stream use of tirofiban in patients ...

Thrombin generation in mesalazine refractory ulcerative colitis and the influence of low molecular weight heparin

Background In ulcerative colitis (UC), a state of hypercoagulation has frequently been observed. Low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) has shown beneficial effects as an adjuvant treatment of steroid refractory UC in open trials. We assessed potential therapeutic effects of the LMWH reviparin in hospitalised patients with mesalazine refractory UC, as well as its influence on ...
