Mehta, M.D., from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and colleagues randomly assigned patients with STEMI and multivessel coronary artery disease who had undergone successful culprit-lesion PCI to either a strategy of complete revascularization with PCI of angiographically significant nonculprit lesions or no further revascularization.
The abstract reports on the blinded analysis of the long-term follow-up of the first cohort of patients enrolled in the ongoing Hemostemix Phase 2 multi-center randomized double-blind placebo-controlled clinical study of ACP-01 in CLI patients with no revascularization options.
The National, Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) classification and the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) flow grade classification were used to characterize the SCD lesions.4,5 The coronary segment involved with SCD was classified by the Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization Investigation (BARI) classification.6 The dissection length was divided into two groups: short (< 20mm) and long ([greater than or equal to] 20mm).
Compared to the general population, elderly patients undergoing coronary revascularization have traditionally been more likely to present with more: complex lesions, unstable angina, comorbid conditions and lower ejection fractions.
For patients with multivessel coronary disease, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) frequently involves incomplete revascularization (IR) because of coronary anatomy complexity or coexisting serious clinical conditions.[1],[2],[3] The prognostic impact of IR after PCI had been inconsistent among studies,[4],[5],[6],[7] and one potential explanation was due to the lack of consent definition of IR.[8]
In a letter submitted yesterday to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma, 23 bipartisan lawmakers expressed concern that the CY 2019 Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) Proposed Rule would inappropriately cut reimbursement rates for performing revascularization procedures, which are vital for clearing patients' arteries of dangerous clogs and significantly preventing thousands of unnecessary amputations.

It was previously thought that regenerating the necrotic pulp of an immature tooth with periapical periodontitis was impossible; nowadays however we know that, in a suitable medium, this can be achieved using the technique known variously as "revascularization" [4, 5] or "revitalization" [6].
