Abstract

This study analyzed PWAs in patients with high Framingham risk scores to determine whether PWA is predictive of coronary artery disease (CAD) severity and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) treatment. In total, 310 patients were screened due to suspected CAD; 78 were excluded due to PCI history (32), atrial fibrillation (11), or acute myocardial infarction (35). The augmentation index (AIx) was analyzed immediately before coronary angiography. PCI was performed in 73 (31.5 %) patients. The mean AIx, adjusted by heart rate ([email protected]) was different for each clinical diagnosis in the PCI group (stable angina, 30.6 ± 7.7 %; silent ischemia, 30.2 ± 8.6 %; unstable angina, 38.5 ± 8.5 %; p = 0.026). The 10-year estimate of CVD risk, based on the Framingham heart score, was 25.3 ± 6.5 % and the mean [email protected] was 31.6 ± 8.5 % in the PCI group, significantly higher than in the non-PCI group (18.8 ± 10.2 %, p < 0.001; 27.2 ± 9.0 %, p = 0.006, respectively). An inverse correlation was observed between the minimal luminal area and [email protected] (rho = -0.559, p = 0.010, n = 20). In ROC curve analysis of multivariate logistic regression model, higher HDL, medication of hypertension, and higher body mass index were associated with non-PCI and higher [email protected] was associated with PCI (area under the curve, 0.764; 95 % CI: 0.701 to 0.819, z = 8.005; p <0.001). The [email protected] seemed to reflect the clinical severity of CAD and was associated with PCI in patients with a high Framingham risk score.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 21 October 2015.
All research outputs
#2,994,436
of 6,356,958 outputs
Outputs from BMC Cardiovascular Disorders
#244
of 512 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#104,652
of 197,213 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Cardiovascular Disorders
#11
of 26 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 6,356,958 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 512 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.7. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 197,213 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 26 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
