[Primary percutaneous coronary angioplasty in patients with acute coronary syndrome and concomitant cancer].

[Article in Russian]


The paper gives the results of X-ray surgical treatment in patients with acute coronary syndrome who have been ascertained to have concomitant cancer during their examination. Cancer was found in 11 patients in their medical history and diagnosed in 2 patients during examination after surgical treatment and 1 patient one year after his hospital discharge. The results of combination treatment showed the high efficiency of X-ray surgical treatment for acute coronary syndrome. Recovery of TIMI-III blood flow through the infarct-related coronary artery was achieved in 100% of cases; immediate clinical efficiency was 97.4%. In the concomitant cancer group, the therapeutic efficacy was 100%; there were no complications during X-ray surgery. All the patients from this group were discharged from hospital in a satisfactory state to be followed up by a cardiologist and oncologist for further treatment. The study performed suggests that concomitant cancer is not a contraindication to primary coronary angioplasty in patients with acute coronary syndrome. Primary coronary angioplasty with stenting is a safe effective treatment for acute coronary syndrome in this category of patients.
