ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Randomized trial data support the superiority of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery over percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in diabetic patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (MV-CAD). However, whether this benefit is seen in a real-world population among subjects with stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD) and acute coronary syndromes (ACS) is unknown. OBJECTIVES: The main objective of this study was to assess the generalizability of the FREEDOM (Future REvascularization Evaluation in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus: Optimal Management of Multi-vessel Disease) trial in real-world practice among patients with diabetes mellitus and MV-CAD in residents of British Columbia, Canada. Additionally, the study evaluated the impact of mode of revascularization (CABG vs. PCI with drug-eluting stents) in diabetic patients with ACS and MV-CAD. METHODS: In a large population-based database from British Columbia, this study evaluated major cardiovascular outcomes in all diabetic patients who underwent coronary revascularization between 2007 and 2014 (n = 4,661, 2,947 patients with ACS). The primary endpoint (major adverse cardiac or cerebrovascular events [MACCE]) was a composite of all-cause death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, and nonfatal stroke. The risk of MACCE with CABG or PCI was compared using multivariable adjustment and a propensity score model. RESULTS: At 30-days post-revascularization, for ACS patients the odds ratio for MACCE favored CABG 0.49 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.34 to 0.71), whereas among SIHD patients MACCE was not affected by revascularization strategy (odds ratio: 1.46; 95% CI: 0.71 to 3.01; p CONCLUSIONS: In diabetic patients with MV-CAD, CABG was associated with a lower rate of long-term MACCE relative to PCI for both ACS and SIHD. A well-powered randomized trial of CABG versus PCI in the ACS population is warranted because these patients have been largely excluded from prior trials.

ABSTRACT: Several studies have reported an association between enteric bacteria and atherosclerosis. Bacterial 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene belong to Enterobacteriaceae have been detected in atherosclerotic plaques. How intestinal bacteria go into blood is not known. Zonulin reversibly modulate intestinal permeability (IP), the circulating zonulin levels were increased in diabetes, obesity, all of which are risk factors for atherosclerosis. It is unclear whether the circulating zonulin levels were changed in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients and modulate IP. The 16S rRNA gene of bacteria in blood sample was checked by 454 pyrosequencing. The zonulin levels were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) methods. The distribution of zonulin was detected by confocal immunofluorescence microscopy. Bacteria and Caco-2 cell surface micro-structure were checked by transmission electron microscopy. A high diversity of bacterial 16S rRNA gene can be detected in samples from CAD patients, most of them (99.4%) belong to Enterobacteriaceaes, eg. Rahnella. The plasma zonulin levels were significantly higher in CAD patients. Pseudomonas fluorescens exposure significantly increased zonulin expression and decreased IP in a time dependent manner. The elevated zonulin increase IP and may facilitate enteric translocation by disassembling the tight junctions, which might explain the observed high diversity of bacterial 16S rRNA genes in blood samples.

ABSTRACT: The aim of the present study was to identify the genetic defect responsible for familial coronary artery disease/myocardial infarction (CAD/MI), which exhibited an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance, in an extended Chinese Han pedigree containing 34 members. Using exome and Sanger sequencing, a novel 6‑base pair (bp) 'CAGCCG' deletion in exon 11 of the myocyte enhancer factor 2A (MEF2A) gene was identified, which cosegregated with CAD/MI cases in this family. This 6‑bp deletion was not detected in 311 sporadic cases of premature CAD/MI or in 323 unrelated healthy controls. Determination of a genetic risk profile has a key role in understanding the pathogenesis of CAD and MI. Among the reported risk‑conferring genes and their variants, mutations in MEF2A have been reported to segregate with CAD/MI in Caucasian families. Causative missense mutations have also been detected in sporadic CAD/MI cases. However, this suggested genetic linkage is controversial, since it could not be confirmed by ensuing studies. The discovery of a novel MEF2A mutation in a Chinese family with premature CAD/MI suggests that MEF2A may have a significant role in the pathogenesis of premature CAD/MI. To better understand this association, further in vitro and in vivo studies are required.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: The joint contribution of sex, ethnicity, and initial clinical presentation to the long-term outcomes of patients undergoing coronary angiography for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or stable angina, in whom there is angiographic evidence for obstructive coronary artery disease, remains unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: We conducted a population-based cohort study on 49 556 adult ACS or stable angina patients with angiographic evidence of obstructive coronary artery disease (≥ 50% stenosis) in British Columbia. The 2-year composite outcome was all-cause death and hospital readmissions for myocardial infarction, heart failure, cerebrovascular accident, or angina after the index angiography. Sex and ethnic differences in the composite outcome were examined by clinical presentation using the Cox proportional-hazards and logistic regression models. Overall, 25.6% were women, 9.5% were South Asians, 3.0% were Chinese, and 65.9% presented with ACS. Regardless of ethnicity, women were more likely than men to have adverse outcomes, but the magnitude of the sex difference was greater in the ACS patients (P(interaction) for sex and clinical presentation=0.03). Angina readmission accounted for 45% of the composite outcome and was the main component for all groups with the exception of Chinese women with ACS. Furthermore, women were more likely than men to be readmitted for angina (odds ratio [95% confidence interval], 1.13 [1.04-1.22]). CONCLUSIONS: Higher rates of adverse events among women with obstructive coronary artery disease, regardless of ethnicity, as well as high rates of angina readmission, highlight the need for more targeted interventions to reduce the burden of angina because this presentation is clearly not benign.

6 Article Sex differences in clinical outcomes in patients with stable angina and no obstructive coronary artery disease. 2013

Sedlak, Tara L / Lee, May / Izadnegahdar, Mona / Merz, C Noel Bairey / Gao, Min / Humphries, Karin H. ·Vancouver General Hospital, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. ·Am Heart J · Pubmed #23816019.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: We comparatively evaluated clinical outcomes in men and women presenting with stable angina with no coronary artery disease (CAD), nonobstructive CAD, and obstructive CAD on coronary angiography. METHODS: We studied all patients ≥20 years with stable angina, undergoing coronary angiography in British Columbia, Canada, from July 1999 to December 2002 (n = 13,695) with maximum follow-up to 3 years. No CAD, nonobstructive CAD, and obstructive CAD were defined as 0%, 1% to 49%, and ≥50% luminal narrowing in any epicardial coronary artery, respectively. Freedom from major adverse cardiac events (MACEs), which included the combined end points of all-cause mortality, nonfatal acute myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, and heart failure admissions, was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% CIs for MACE were estimated up to 3 years postcatheterization and compared between sex and CAD groups. RESULTS: Within the first year, women with nonobstructive CAD had a higher risk of MACE than men with nonobstructive CAD (adjusted HR 2.43, 95% CI 1.08-5.49). Furthermore, women with nonobstructive CAD had a 2.55-fold higher risk of MACE than women with no CAD (95% CI 1.33-4.88). In contrast, men with nonobstructive CAD had a similar risk as men with no CAD (adjusted HR 0.61, 95% CI 0.26-1.45). The differences in MACE according to extent of CAD were not evident in the longer term. CONCLUSIONS: Women with stable angina and nonobstructive CAD are 3 times more likely to experience a cardiac event within the first year of cardiac catheterization than men. A prospective trial to examine the impact of medical therapy on MACE in patients with nonobstructive CAD is warranted.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are more likely to have complications due to cardiovascular disease (CVD). This study was performed to investigate the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the relation of CKD and number of stenosed coronary vessels in patients who had undergone coronary angiography with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS: The data of 1,010 consecutive patients who underwent coronary angiography for suspected CAD in Zhongda Hospital were analyzed. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was calculated with the abbreviated Modified Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) Study equation. CKD was defined as presence of eGFR <60 ml/min per 1.73 m(2) and/or proteinuria. Luminal narrowing with at least 1 lesion =50% in the main branches of the coronary artery was considered as CAD. The number of stenotic arteries was recorded (1- to 3-vessel disease [VD]). A significant stenosis in the left main trunk was scored as 2-VD. RESULTS: Patients with CAD had a significantly higher prevalence of CKD compared with patients without CAD (18.8% vs. 5.4%, p<0.001). CKD was significantly associated with CAD, 2-VD and 3-VD, versus without CAD (0-VD) (odds ratio [OR] = 2.163; 95% confidence interval [95% CI], 1.296-3.611; OR=2.478; 95% CI, 1.288-4.766; OR=2.504; 95% CI, 1.271-4.933; respectively) after adjustment for covariates. CONCLUSIONS: There was a higher prevalence of CKD in patients with CAD diagnosed by coronary angiography, and it increased with the number of stenosed coronary vessels. CKD is a critical risk factor for CAD, especially 3-VD.
