ASPIRIN RESISTANCE

Fellowship in Interventional cardiology (France) Senior consultant & Interventional Cardiologist, Chennai, India.

Dr. G. Sengottuvelu, MD DM DNB FSCAI FMMC

Aspirin is the cornerstone of therapy in atherothrombosis, encompassing a wide spectrum of clinical entities. A meta-analysis of 287 clinical trials on aspirin in the prevention of cardiovascular disease has provided firm evidence that antiplatelet therapy, mainly aspirin, can reduce by approximately 25% the risk of non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI),non-fatal stroke, or vascular death in high-risk patients, regardless of sex, age, presence of arterial hypertension or diabetes . An absolute reduction in the risk of having a serious vascular event was 36 per 1000 MI survivors treated for 2 years . Undoubtedly, clinical benefits of aspirin are most apparent in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), which has been convincingly demonstrated in the landmark infarction trial, Second International Study of Infarct Survival (ISIS-2). Treatment failures occur with any drug and aspirin is no exception. Evidence is growing to indicate that there are subpopulations that do not respond to antithrombotic action of aspirin. The term aspirin resistance has been used to describe a number of different phenomena, including inability of aspirin to: (i) protect against cardiovascular events despite its regular intake; (ii) to affect various laboratory tests, reflecting platelet activity. Possible causes of recurrent ischemic vascular events among patients taking aspirin Non-atherothrombotic causes of vascular events Embolism from the heart (red fibrinthrombi;vegetations; calcium;tumour;prostheses) Arteritis Reduced bioavailability of aspirin Inadequate intake of aspirin (poor compliance) Inadequate dose of aspirin Concurrent intake of certain non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (for example ibuprofen,indomethacin), possibly preventing the access of aspirin to cyclo oxygenase-1 binding site Alternative pathways of platelet activation Platelet activation by pathways that are not blocked by aspirin (for example, red cell induced platelet activation: stimulation of collagen, adenosine diphosphate, epinephrine, and thrombin receptors on platelets) Increased platelet sensitivity to collagen and adenosine diphosphate Biosynthesis of thromboxane by pathways that are not blocked by aspirin (for example, by cyclo-oxygenase-2 in monocytes and macrophages, and vascular endothelial cells) Increased turnover of platelets Increased production of platelets by the bone marrow in response to stress (for example, after coronary artery bypass surgery), introducing into blood stream newly formed platelets unexposed to aspirin during the 24 hour dose interval (aspirin is given once daily and has only a 20 minute half life)

Genetic polymorphisms Polymorphisms involving platelet glycoprotein Ia/IIa, Ib/V/IX, and IIb/IIIa receptors, and collagen and von Willebrand factor receptors Polymorphisms of cyclo-oxygenase-1,cyclo-oxygenase-2, thromboxane A2-synthase, or other arachidonate metabolism enzymes Factor XIII Val34Leu polymorphism, leading to variable inhibition of factor XIII activation by low dose aspirin HOW COMMON IS BIOCHEMICAL ASPIRIN RESISTANCE? In studies investigating the prevalence of biochemical aspirin resistance, the range of prevalence estimates for biochemical aspirin resistance varied from 5.5% to 56.8%, depending on the method of assessing platelet function, the definition of biochemical aspirin resistance, and the patients tested. These studies suggest that biochemical aspirin resistance is a measurable phenomenon in a substantial proportion of patients prescribed aspirin. However, the studies have several limitations, including small sample sizes, lack of agreement between different platelet function tests, different dose regimens and nonadherence, and little information about measurement stability over time.

CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS No current evidence shows that patients with biochemical aspirin resistance would respond better to alternative antiplatelet treatment regimens. Identifying such patients directly may be less cost-effective than prescribing aspirin to everyone at risk and accepting some treatment failures. We do not want to risk depriving some patients of a treatment that may benefit them, even though the effect may be small. Despite treatment failures, aspirin remains the single most cost-effective drug for the secondary prevention of atherothrombotic disease. To optimize its clinical effectiveness, clinicians should be aware of the potential causes of aspirin treatment failure, prescribe aspirin in appropriate doses, and encourage patients to take aspirin, stop smoking, and avoid regular use of NSAIDs and add other antiplatelet drugs.

UCTION IFETAL PREGNANCY RED Dr. E.S. Usha MULT


Consultant in Fetal Medicine Erode.

Multifetal pregnancy reduction is the elective termination of a variable number of fetuses attempting to improve the perinatal outcome of the remaining fetuses. Multifetal pregnancy reduction (MFPR) is a clinical procedure that began in the 1980s PROBLEMS OF MULTIFETAL PREGNANCY. Multiple pregnancies of higher order are almost always a result of infertility therapies. It is well known that high order multiple gestations have increased risks for both maternal and fetal complications, and the most common are the entire pregnancy loss, maternal high blood pressure, intrauterine growth retardation, premature rupture of membranes, and pre-term delivery. The occurrence of any of these events increase the risk of perinatal death and that of sequelae, such as interventricular hemorrhage, cerebral palsy, retinopathy, respiratory diseases, and more. The fetal reduction procedure may improve maternal and fetal conditions, thus reducing the risk of prematurity and its associated complications TIMING Transvaginal aspiration is usually done before 9 weeks. Transabdominal injection is done at 11- 13 weeks. This is the preferred timing as some of the fetuses would have spontaneously miscarried avoiding the procedure. In addition, waiting until the latter period increases the chances of detecting an intrinsic growth delay in one of the fetuses. Because a significant lag in crown-rump length increases the risk of chromosomal anomalies and spontaneous abortion, these fetuses would be targeted for reduction. Moreover, the chances that morphologic abnormalities may be detected by ultrasonography improve with each advancing week of gestation PREOPERATIVE ULTRASOUND The aim of ultrasound is to identify the number of live fetuses, their growth, mapping their location and check for the chorionicity. The Nuchal translucency measurement is done and a careful examination of the fetal anatomy is carried out. The fetuses not to reduced should be precisely identified so that any trauma to the fetuses and membrane can be carefully avoided. SELECTION OF THE FETUSES If there are no fetal abnormalities the choice of embryos to be reduced in mainly by their location, the easier to reach is selected. The fetus just above the internal os is usually not selected fot reduction.If a set of monochorial fetuses are present both of them are reduced. If we inject one of the fetuses the KCL will reach the other fetus in most of the time. Also the incidence of complication is more with monochorionic twins. There is generally no medical indication for MFPR in twins PREOPERATIVE COUNSELING Information about the natural history of multiple pregnancies and on the

expected obstetrical and perinatal results of the reduction procedure should be given. TECHNIQUES - Trascervical aspiration - Transabdominal needling - Transvaginal needling Transcervical aspiration The patient is placed in lithotomy position. Cervix is gradually dilated. A Karmann's cannula connected with 20 ml syringe is introduced. The fetus to be reduced is identified by transabdominal ultrasound and the embryo is aspirated leaving behind the placenta. The procedure is repeated if more embryos are to be reduced. The disadvantages include significant bleeding and higher pregnancy losses and hence this method is no longer used. Transabdominal needling Under ultrasound guidance by an abdominal probe a 20 gauge needle is inserted through he mother's abdomen into the thorax of the embryo. Aspiration is done by the attached syringe to make sure the needle is not in the amniotic cavity. Then KCL is injected slowly . Usually upto 1-2 ml og KCL will be required. The cessation of fetal heart should be documented. Occasionally the fluid injected can be seen as pleural effusion. After the needle is removed the reduced fetus often sinks passively in the amniotic cavity. The success of the procedure should be rechecked by ultrasound on the following day. Transvaginal needling The needle is inserted through a transvaginal needle guide attached to a vaginal ultrasound probe and advanced through the vaginal and uterine wall into the gestational sac. KCL is introduced into the fetal thorax. POSTOPERATIVE FOLLOW UP Spotting may be seen after transcervical aspiration. The usefulness of prophylactic antibiotics, tocolytic agents or cervical suture has not been demonstrated. RESULTS Fetal reduction can be associated with the loss of entire pregnancy in 5-16 % of pregnancies. The loss rate is more with increased number of fetuses and less with experienced operators. This includes the pregnancies which otherwise also would have been lost. Various studies have shown improved perinatal outcome in pregnancies with three or more fetuses undergoing reduction to twins. CONCLUSION In pregnancies with three or more fetuses fetal reduction helps to improve perinatal outcome. However the procedure related loss should also be borne in mind and adequate steps taken to reduce this clinical situation.

Observance of 26th National Fortnight on Eye Donation (25 August 8 September -201 1)
Dr. M.Ravi kumar, Chief Civil Eye Surgeon, Erode.

LET THEM SMILE WITH OUR EYES--- DONATE EYES

F A Q -----On EYE DONATION


Ministry of Health and Family welfare, Govt. of India, declare National Eye Donation Fortnight. This fortnight will be celebrated in between August 25 to September 8. And September 8 will be observed as National Eye Donation Day. What is an eye bank? An eye bank is an organisation, which obtain, evaluates and distributes eyes from humanitarian-minded citizens for use in corneal transplantation, research and education. To ensure patient safety, the donated eyes are evaluated under strict medical standards. All donated eyes not suitable for corneal transplantation are used for valuable research and education. Why should eyes be donated? Donated human eyes are necessary in preservation and restoration of sight through corneal transplantation, research and education. More than 90% corneal transplant operation successfully restores vision in people suffering from blindness due to corneal problems. Infants born with cloudy corneas have an opportunity to see following corneal transplantation. What is the cornea? The cornea is the clear, transparent dome in front of the "black portion" of the eye. It is also the main focusing surface, which converges light rays as they enter the eye to focus on the retina. It is thus the most important part of the optical apparatus of the Eye. Loss of transparency directly results in loss of vision. What is corneal Transplantation? A Corneal transplant is an operation which replaces the opaque cornea with a clear cornea Obtained from a human donor eye. How does a cornea become opaque? 1.Infection , 2.Injuries, 3.Iatrogenic (Malpractice, Improper Post-op. care after any eye surgery), 4.Malnutrition , 5.Congenital/Hereditary. Magnitude of the problem in India: There are currently an estimated 13 lakh corneal blind people in the country. Majority of them are young and their sight can be restored only by corneal transplantation. Thus, to effectively meet the ever growing demand, we need around 1,00,000 corneal transplants to be performed every year. Who can be an eye donor? Practically anybody from the age of 1 year. There is no maximum age limit. Poor eye sight and age make no difference. One can bequeath his eyes by taking a pledge while he is alive. He resolve to donate his eyes after his death. This by itself is a noble act but it requires relatives or friends to carry out his pledge, his desire, after his death. Spectacle Wearers, persons who had cataract surgery, diabetics and hypertensives can donate eyes. The ultimate decision about usage for transplantation will be made after evaluation. Can the next-of-kin consent to a donation if the deceased family member hasn't signed a pledge form? Yes.
8

How to donate? You are authorised to donate the eyes of your beloved relatives at the time of their death. That the eyes need to be collected within 6 hours of death. So, call the eye bank as early as possible after the death. Things to do after making the call: 1. Keep both eyes of deceased closed and covered with moist cotton. 2. Switch off the overhead fan. 3. If possible, instill antibiotic eye drops periodically in the deceased's eyes-to reduce the chance of infection. 4. Raise the head end of the body by about 6 inches, if possible - to lessen the incidence of bleeding during the removal of the eyes. Who cannot be a donor? -Death of unknown cause. -Death due to infectious caused viz. Rabies, syphilis, infectious hepatitis, septicemia, and , AIDS, Is there any delay in funeral arrangements? No, Eyes removal is performed shortly (within half an hour) after death and leaves no visible signs the would interfere with common funeral practices. Is there religious conflict? No, Donations gives a gift of life or sight to others. As such, it is consistent with beliefs and attitudes of all major religious and ethical traditions. Can the whole eye be transplanted? No. Only the cornea can be transplanted. However, the rest in part of the donor eye is used for research and education. Can a person blind from retinal or optic nerve disease donate his eyes? Yes. Provided the cornea is clear. Can a living person donate his/her eyes? No. Can the recipients be told who donated the eyes? No. The gift of sight is made anonymously. Any specials phone no. for eye bank and eye donation? Yes, a dedicated special phone no: - Dial - 0424-2252356, 2258355.(G.H,Erode,) is available for 24 hours service. Family members of the deceased persons can contact this phone no. to donate the eyes of the deceased persons. What help I can do for the noble cause? Dial the eye bank (if you are at Erode- Dial - 0424-2252356, 2258355.G.H,Erode,) soon after unfortunate death of your near & dear one. Consent to donate the eyes of your close relative or friend. Motivate family members of the person who has died in your area. Spread information about eye care and eye donation. You can sponsor the stickers with messages on eye donation, publicity materials and distribute to public with the help of eye bank. You can organize awareness programme on eye care and eye donation in your flats association, office, school, club etc. Make yourself a friend of Eye Bank.
