Malnutrition in ACS patients associated with increased risk of mortality and MACE

Literature - Aug. 26, 2020 - Raposeiras Roubín S, et al. - J Am Coll Cardiol 2020

Malnutrition, assessed by 3 different scores, was common in a cohort of ACS patients. Malnutrition was associated with increased risk of mortality and MACE, independent of BMI.

ACC 2020 The TAILOR-PCI trial showed that genotype-guided antiplatelet therapy reduced ischemic events by 34% in patients who underwent PCI compared to conventional therapy.

No association between HDL particle concentration and MACE after ACS

Literature - Feb. 10, 2020 - Am Heart J 2019

An analysis of data of the dal-OUTCOMES trial shows that concentration of HDL particles is not associated with risk of MACE in patients after ACS.

ACS patients show less dense, calcified plaque than ACS-free controls on clinically indicated CCTA

Literature - Jan. 29, 2020 - Van Rosendael AR et al., - JAMA Cardiol. 2020

The ICONIC study provides support for the hypothesis that higher-density calcified plaques are more stable, as patients who had ACS had lower high-density plaque volume than those without an event.

Associations of outpatient use of P2Y12 inhibitors with MACE in ACS patients after PCI

Literature - Jan. 28, 2020 - Turgeon RD et al., - JAMA Intern Med. 2020.

This observational study of ACS patients after PCI showed that ticagrelor was not associated with lower MACE compared to clopidogrel, but was associated with more major bleeding and dyspnea.
