    • Authors: Barco S; Schmidtmann I, Ageno W, et al.
      Pages: 509 - 518
      Abstract: AbstractAimsTo investigate the efficacy and safety of early transition from hospital to ambulatory treatment in low-risk acute PE, using the oral factor Xa inhibitor rivaroxaban.Methods and resultsWe conducted a prospective multicentre single-arm investigator initiated and academically sponsored management trial in patients with acute low-risk PE (EudraCT Identifier 2013-001657-28). Eligibility criteria included absence of (i) haemodynamic instability, (ii) right ventricular dysfunction or intracardiac thrombi, and (iii) serious comorbidities. Up to two nights of hospital stay were permitted. Rivaroxaban was given at the approved dose for PE for ≥3 months. The primary outcome was symptomatic recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) or PE-related death within 3 months of enrolment. An interim analysis was planned after the first 525 patients, with prespecified early termination of the study if the null hypothesis could be rejected at the level of α = 0.004 (<6 primary outcome events). From May 2014 through June 2018, consecutive patients were enrolled in seven countries. Of the 525 patients included in the interim analysis, three (0.6%; one-sided upper 99.6% confidence interval 2.1%) suffered symptomatic non-fatal VTE recurrence, a number sufficiently low to fulfil the condition for early termination of the trial. Major bleeding occurred in 6 (1.2%) of the 519 patients comprising the safety population. There were two cancer-related deaths (0.4%).ConclusionEarly discharge and home treatment with rivaroxaban is effective and safe in carefully selected patients with acute low-risk PE. The results of the present trial support the selection of appropriate patients for ambulatory treatment of PE.

  • Peripheral pulmonic stenosis in SAPHO syndrome
    • Authors: Kamada K; Hosokawa K, Abe K, et al.
      Pages: 518a - 518a
      Abstract: A 68-year-old woman with exertional dyspnoea (WHO functional class grade III) was referred to our hospital. She had sternoclavicular joint pain for the past few years. Computed tomography revealed the typical appearance of hyperostosis of the sternoclavicular and sternocostal joints (Panel A, arrowheads). Echocardiogram and a lung ventilation–perfusion scan revealed the multiple segmental ventilation-perfusion mismatches (Panel B) with pulmonary hypertension (PH). Right heart catheterization confirmed PH [mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP), 25 mmHg; cardiac index (CI), 1.8 L/min/m2; pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), 7.5 wood units]. Pulmonary angiography revealed the multiple segmental pulmonary artery stenoses with aneurysmal changes (Panel C, arrowheads). Intravascular optical coherence tomography revealed the absence of an organized thrombus. An 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography revealed inflammation in the sternoclavicular joint. Based on these findings, we diagnosed her condition as peripheral pulmonic stenosis (PPS) associated with SAPHO (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis) syndrome according to the criteria outlined by Benhamou et al. After a combination therapy including pulmonary vasodilation and balloon pulmonary angioplasty, her symptoms and PH improved (WHO functional class grade I; mPAP, 26 mmHg; CI, 2.6 L/min/m2; PVR, 3.6 wood units).

  • Trends in thrombolytic treatment and outcomes of acute pulmonary embolism
           in Germany
    • Authors: Keller K; Hobohm L, Ebner M, et al.
      Pages: 522 - 529
      Abstract: AbstractAimsPulmonary embolism (PE) is the third most common cardiovascular cause of death; systemic thrombolysis is potentially lifesaving treatment in patients presenting with haemodynamic instability. We investigated trends in the use of systemic thrombolysis and the outcome of patients with acute PE.Methods and resultsWe analysed data on the characteristics, comorbidities, treatment, and in-hospital outcome of 885 806 PE patients in Germany between 2005 and 2015. Incidence of acute PE was 99/100 000 population/year and increased from 85/100 000 in 2005 to 109/100 000 in 2015 [β 0.32 (0.26–0.38), P < 0.001]. During the same period, in-hospital case fatality rates decreased from 20.4% to 13.9% [β −0.51 (−0.52 to −0.49), P < 0.001]. The overall proportion of patients treated with systemic thrombolysis increased from 3.1% in 2005 to 4.4% in 2015 [β 0.28 (0.25–0.31), P < 0.001]. Thrombolysis was associated with lower in-hospital mortality rates in patients with haemodynamic instability, both in those with shock not necessitating cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or mechanical ventilation [odds ratio (OR) 0.42 (0.37–0.48), P < 0.001], and in those who underwent CPR [OR 0.92 (0.87–0.97), P = 0.002]. This association was independent from age, sex, and comorbidities. However, systemic thrombolysis was administered to only 23.1% of haemodynamically unstable patients.ConclusionAlthough the proportion of PE patients treated with systemic thrombolysis increased slightly in Germany between 2005 and 2015, only the minority of haemodynamically unstable patients currently receive this treatment. In the nationwide inpatient cohort, thrombolytic therapy was associated with reduced in-hospital mortality rates in PE patients with shock, and also in those who underwent CPR.

      Abstract: A 46-year-old man presented with 6 months of progressive exertional dyspnoea. Computed tomography pulmonary angiography showed severe bilateral stenoses of the left and right main pulmonary arteries (Panel A). Exploratory thoracotomy had been performed 2 months earlier for suspected pulmonary embolism, which revealed suspected pulmonary artery malignancy which could not be removed due to high risk of the anatomy. Positron emission tomography-computed tomography did not reveal any other locations suspicious for malignancy. After evaluation by a multidisciplinary team, percutaneous transluminal pulmonary artery biopsy (PTPB) was performed (Panels B and C and Supplementary material onlineSupplementary material online, Video S1) using a biopsy forceps (Panel D) and millet grain sized tissue samples obtained (Panel E). Haematoxylin and eosin staining and immunohistochemical staining were consistent with lymphomatoid granulomatosis (Panel F).

      Abstract: AbstractAimsTo investigate the composition of nocturnal hypoxaemic burden and its prognostic value for cardiovascular (CV) mortality in community-dwelling older men.Methods and resultsWe analysed overnight oximetry data from polysomnograms obtained in 2840 men from the Outcomes of Sleep Disorders in Older Men (MrOS Sleep) study (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00070681) to determine the number of acute episodic desaturations per hour (oxygen desaturation index, ODI) and time spent below 90% oxygen saturation (T90) attributed to acute desaturations (T90desaturation) and to non-specific drifts in oxygen saturation (T90non-specific), respectively, and their relationship with CV mortality. After 8.8 ± 2.7 years follow-up, 185 men (6.5%) died from CV disease. T90 [hazard ratio (HR) 1.21, P < 0.001], but not ODI (HR 1.13, P = 0.06), was significantly associated with CV death in univariate analysis. T90 remained significant when adjusting for potential confounders (HR 1.16, P = 0.004). Men with T90 > 12 min were at an elevated risk of CV mortality (HR 1.59; P = 0.006). Approximately 20.7 (5.7–48.5) percent of the variation in T90 could be attributed to non-specific drifts in oxygen saturation. T90desaturation and T90non-specific were individually associated with CV death but combining both variables did not improve the prediction.ConclusionIn community-dwelling older men, T90 is an independent predictor of CV mortality. T90 is not only a consequence of frank desaturations, but also reflects non-specific drifts in oxygen saturation, both contributing towards the association with CV death. Whether T90 can be used as a risk marker in the clinical setting and whether its reduction may constitute a treatment target warrants further study.
