Antithrombotic therapy in the coronary vein graft patient

Clinical Cardiology
D H IsraelV Fuster


Coronary artery bypass grafting is an important therapeutic modality in the treatment of the patient with coronary artery disease; however, long-term results are limited by the development of saphenous vein graft disease early and late after operation. The pathogenesis of early vein graft occlusion is primarily thrombotic, while that occurring later frequently involves thrombosis superimposed on intimal hyperplasia or vein graft atherosclerosis. We describe the role of various platelet inhibitors and anticoagulants in the prevention of saphenous vein graft occlusion following coronary artery bypass grafting.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
