Older people with dementia experience many severe potential drug-drug interactions. Anti-depressants, antiplatelets, anti-psychotics and omeprazole were the drugs most commonly involved in these interactions. Despite their frequent use, anti-dementia drugs were not involved in severe potential drug-drug interactions. The number and type of medications taken, dementia severity and depression in patients in addition to caregiver burden should be considered to avoid possible drug interactions in this population.

Data from the PLAATO trial current as of July 2010 was used for this analysis (n = 22). Mechanical occlusion using the PLAATO device was used in 22 patients (age 68 ± 5, CHADS(2) score = 3.03 ± 0.6). Warfarin and clopidogrel were stopped during follow-up in all but one patient due to development of pulmonary emboli. After an average follow-up of 58 ± 9 months, four out of 22 patients (16.7%) developed a new ischemic stroke/TIA, translating to an annualized embolic rate of 3.63%. There were no differences in the demographics (age, sex, and CHADS(2) score) among patients with and without stroke. Cardiac CT documented peri-device leak in three out of four patients with stroke and in seven out of nine (75% vs. 77%, p = 0.706) patients without stroke that agreed to have a follow-up cardiac CT (Chi squared with Yates correction for this interaction = 0.012, p = 0.912). TEE corroborated these results but failed to identify peri-device leak in three patients without stroke.

During follow-up (561.7+/-251.4 days), 15 patients (1.14%) developed stent thrombosis between day 1 to day 657. Stent thrombosis occurred in seven patients (1.39%) on triple antiplatelet therapy and four patients (0.49%) on dual antiplatelet therapy (p=NS) within the first six months after stenting. Six months and later, after stent implantation, one patient (0.25%) developed stent thrombosis in the cilostazol group, and three (0.47%) in the clopidogrel group (p=NS).

Aretrospective cohort study, was adopted to extract patients primarily diagnosed as ischemic stroke from healthcare database. The first hospital records were considered as the patient's baseline in this study, who were divided into MAPT (aspirin) and DAPT (aspirin and clopidogrel) according to the patient's baseline medications. A follow-up was conducted to see whether the patients would have rehospitalization record because of major result events after medication. The major result events, included: (1) recurrence of ischemic stroke; (2) hemorrhagic transformation of ischemic stroke; (3) myocardial infarction; (4) the digestive hemorrhage. The Kaplan-Meier figure was used to compare the survival situations between these two groups, the log-rank test was used to test the difference of the survival curve, and 1:1 propensity score matching was calculated from the patients' baseline data. Cox proportional hazards model was used to calculate the hazard ratio (HR).

Clinical Trials.gov # NCT02206815, registered July 30, 2014.
Low-dose aspirin is widely used in the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular events, but is associated with a range of upper gastrointestinal side effects. In this review, we summarize the rationale for low-dose aspirin therapy, quantify the risk for upper gastrointestinal side effects, identify the risk factors involved, and provide an overview of preventive strategies, thereby focusing on the rationale and clinical utility of combining proton-pump inhibitors with low-dose aspirin.

A 34-year-old man developed right neck pain. Several hours later, he felt numbness of his extremities and presented at our hospital. He developed right hemiparesis and hypoesthesia of the right extremities. A few hours later, upbeat nystagmus and dysarthria appeared along with a sensory disturbance that spread to all extremities, and right hemiparesis progressed to tetraplegia. Brain MR diffusion-weighted images revealed a high-intensity lesion in the bilateral medial medulla oblongata and we diagnosed this bilateral medial medullary infarction. Three dimentional CT angiography revealed dissection of the right VA. We administered intravenous argatroban, edaravone, glycerin and oral clopidogrel. He was assessed as having modified Rankin scale 4 and was transferred to another hospital for rehabilitation on day 30. When the medial medulla oblongata is supplied by the unilateral VA, a unilateral VA dissection can cause bilateral medial medullary infarction.

Gender-related differences in mortality of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) have been reported. The extent and causes of these differences in the Middle-East are poorly understood. We studied to what extent difference in outcome, specifically 1-year mortality are attributable to demographic, baseline clinical differences at presentation, and management differences between female and male patients.

Current guidelines recommend antithrombotic therapy with either aspirin or clopidogrel for all patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Nevertheless, cardiovascular comorbidities and perceived bleeding risk complicate antithrombotic management of PAD patients. We studied the proportion of patients receiving optimal (guideline-recommended) antithrombotic therapy, and second, assessed the impact of suboptimal antithrombotic therapy use to long-term outcomes of PAD patients.

Given the high thrombotic risk of patients with STEMI, greater platelet inhibition may improve outcome in those patients receiving percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Although observational data suggest that pretreatment with a 600-mg clopidogrel loading dose may be more effective than the 300-mg regimen in primary PCI, this hypothesis has never been tested in a randomized study.

In the PRINCIPLE-TIMI 44 trial, the primary outcome was inhibition of platelet aggregation at 6 h assessed by light-transmission aggregometry. In the TRITON-TIMI 38 trial, the primary endpoint was the composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or stroke. In both studies, PPI use was at physician's discretion. We used a multivariable Cox model with propensity score to assess the association of PPI use with clinical outcomes.
DAPT may be associated with reduced rates of MACEs and death among patients with symptomatic peripheral arterial disease.

A case of a 64-year-old male with multiple cardiovascular disease risk factors and non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction complicated by recurrent stent thrombosis is presented. Percutaneous coronary angioplasty with bare metal stent implantation was performed due to critical stenosis of the left circumflex coronary artery. The recovery was complicated by two episodes of stent thrombosis on the 4th and 10th day of in-hospital stay, both treated by subsequent percutaneous coronary interventions. Our hypothesis of resistance to antiplatelet therapy was confirmed by an in vitro test.

TIA and stroke must be recognized and treated urgently. Through public education, readily available information, access to diagnostic imaging devices, and aggressive preventive strategies and treatments, the frequency and severity of secondary cerebrovascular events, as well as the economic burden of secondary stroke, could be substantially reduced.
Consecutive patients (N = 1,640) undergoing stenting for STEMI were prospectively enrolled in our database and followed for 1 to 15 years. Bare-metal stents were implanted from 1995 to 2002, and drug-eluting and bare-metal stents were implanted from 2003 to 2009. Stent thrombosis was defined as definite or probable.
