Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is often underdiagnosed in women. It is therefore of interest to identify biomarkers that indicate increased risk of AMI and thereby help clinicians to have additional focus on the difficult AMI diagnosis. Type I Collagen, a component of the cardiac extracellular matrix, is cleaved by matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) generating the neo-epitope C1M. We investigated the association between serum-C1M and AMI and evaluated whether C1M is a prognostic marker for outcome following AMI...

Pheochromocytoma is a rare cause of hypertension, but it could have severe consequences if not recognized and treated appropriately. Pheochromocytoma classically presents with paroxysms of hypertension and adrenergic symptoms including classic triad of episodic headache, sweating, and tachycardia. The clinical presentation of pheochromocytoma can mimic a number of other medical conditions including migraine, cardiac arrhythmias, myocardial infarction, and stroke, thus making the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma difficult, and treatment is directed toward presenting issue rather than underlying problem in such patients...

Stroke is the third most common cause of death worldwide following myocardial infaction and malignancies, furthermore, its functional outcome is the worst of all conditions. Cholesterol, especially LDL-cholesterol plays a key role in the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. It has been verified recently that escalating incidence and mortality of cerebrovascular diseases are proportional to increased levels of LDL-cholesterol. Statin therapy undeniably reduces the risk of stroke, however other methods for decreasing lipid levels have not been proved significantly effective...

Free wall rupture of the left ventricle (LV) is a rare but life-threatening complication of acute myocardial infaction. Very rarely such rupture may be contained by the adhering pericardium creating a pseudoaneurysm. This condition warrants for an emergency surgery. Left ventricular aneurysm is the discrete thinning of the ventricular wall (<5 mm) with akinetic or dyskinetic wall motion causing an out-pouching of the ventricle. Given the propensity for pseudoaneurysms to rupture leading to cardiac tamponade, shock, and death, compared with a more benign natural history for true aneurysms, accurate diagnosis of these conditions is important...

INTRODUCTION: Stent entrapment and dislodgement in the coronary arteries is a rare but potentially fatal complication of percutaneous coronary intervention. Different retrival techniques of dislodged stents have previously been reported with high success rate but all of them are time-consuming, so as not quite useful in hemodinamically unstable patient. CASE REPORT: A 59-year old female patient with acute ST-elevation myocardial infaction of anterior wall was admitted for primary percutanous coronary intervention...

The dietary-sodium restriction is a standard approach following an acute myocardial infarction (MI). We examined the hypothesis in which the use of a high or low-sodium diet would worsen post-infarction left ventricular remodeling in rats and facilitate the development of heart failure. Left coronary artery ligation or sham-operated (SO) was produced in male Wistar rats (250-290 g). After surgery, animals were assigned to one of the three diets: standard amount of sodium (0.3% NaCl, SO and MI groups), a high-sodium diet (0...

BACKGROUND: As the regulators of cytokines, suppressors of cytokine signaling (SOCS) play an important role in the inflammation reaction. Some studies found that SOCS-1 and SOCS-3 were involved in the pathogenesis of some inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease. But the expressions of SOCS in coronary heart disease have not yet been reported. This study aimed to investigate the expression and clinical significance of SOCS-1 and SOCS-3 in the myocardium of patients with sudden cardiac death (SCD)...

Diabetic foot is a common complication in diabetes mellitus course, able to increase the overall morbidity/mortality risk of such a disease. The aim was to investigate the outcomes, the incidence of clinical events, the number of recurrent ulcers in patients with diabetic foot during 1 year follow-up after angioplasty (PTA) revascularization. From January 2007 to August 2009, 103 diabetic patients with diabetic foot undergoing revascularization of a lower limb by PTA were recruited. At 1 year follow-up we assessed: "major" (death, stroke, Myocardial Infaction (MI) and "minor" (Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), renal failure, restenosis) events incidence; recurrent ulcers incidence; the predictive elements of all these events...

Current clinical practice regarding surveillance period and length of hospital stay after an ST elevation myocardial infarction is very variable among different countries and hospitals. In general, there has been a significant reduction in length of stay overall, which is mainly due to the increasing use of primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Length of stay after a ST elevation myocardial infaction, which is a rather common event, has a major impact on health care costs and patients' quality of life...

OBJECTIVE: To construct octamer-binding transcription factor-4 (Oct4) adenoviruse eukaryotic expression vector pAV.Ex1d.-CMV>mOCT4/IRES/eGFP, and study its effect on myocardial regeneration in mice. METHODS: We constructed eukaryotic expression vector pAV.Ex1d.-CMV>mOCT4/IRES/eGFP using Gateway(R);technology and then packaged the vector with adenoviruses. After adenovirus packaging, the vector was injected into the mouse myocardium by microsyringe. The expression of Oct4 was determined by the methods of immunofluorescence and RT-PCR, and hematoxylin-eosin (HE) staining was used to detect whether the myocardial tissue was changed after the expression of Oct4...

Detection of early acute myocardial ischemia/infarction prior to neutrophilic infiltration in autopsy myocardium poses a diagnostic dilemma to the surgical pathologist. Morphological changes can be subtle or not identified at all on the hematoxylin and eosin stain. To evaluate the Masson's trichrome stain and immunohistochemical stains, desmin and myoglobin, in detecting acute myocardial ischemia/infarction in autopsy myocardium. We reviewed the autopsy files of the New York Harbor Healthcare System and retrieved 25 cases of early acute myocardial infarction...

Multichannel magnetocardiography (MCG) noninvasively registers the magnetic activity of the heart at different points above the thorax. This information can be used to determine the magnetic field produced by cardiac activity as well to reconstruct the current density distribution in the myocardium, which can then be examined during cardiac de- and repolarisation. First studies have shown that the detection of disease specific changes of the magnetic field and current density permit the diagnosis and localization of myocardial infaction (MI) and myocardial ischemia within the context of coronary artery disease (CAD)...

Several works show an association between depression and the occurence of a first myocardial infarction. Depression after myocardial infarction seems to be a marker of poorer outcome, regardless of other risk factors or severity of the myocardial infarction. Dysautonomia and alteration of platelet activation are a few physiopathological changes shared by both affections, through which they might be related. Treatment of depression is not associated with better cardiovascular outcome, but selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors have been shown safe and efficient among patients with coronary heart disease...
