BACKGROUND: Coronary artery disease (CAD) in young adults under 40 years of age is a growing medical, social, psychological and economical problem, related to the prevalence of civilization-related diseases and unhealthy lifestyle. The problem of CAD in young people has not been characterised as well as in older individuals, as the available data mostly come from case reports and small series, often related to genetic aspects and familial occurrence of the disease. AIM: To assess clinical and angiographic characteristics of young adults with CAD and to evaluate in-hospital and long-term mortality in this patient group...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the impact of pre-primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) β blocker use on the development of no-reflow in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients post PCI. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 1 615 outpatients with STEMI who underwent primary primary PCI with in 12 hours from symptom onset admitted to Beijing Anzhen Hospital and Chinese people's liberation army general hospital from January 2007 to June 2011...

BACKGROUND: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is often present in old populations and rare in young people. Its incidence significantly increased recent years. The mechanism and disease course of AMI in young people are probably different from that in old population. The aim of this study was to analyze clinical risk factors of STEMI in young patients. METHODS: Data was collected from consecutive patients ≤ 44 years of age (young; n = 86) and 60-74 years of age (old; n = 65) diagnosed with STEMI, and 79 young age-matched patients without coronary artery disease (CAD), hospitalized between January 2009 and June 2013...

UNLABELLED: Atherosclerosis is a chronic and progressive inflammatory process that causes the most advanced changes in elderly people. In 2006 we published the results of the analysis of acute coronary syndromes in patients after 80 years of age. Conducted the study have decided to extend the observation of distant patients. THE AIM of this study was to assess the effectiveness of remote monitoring percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) performed in patients with acute coronary syndrome after 80 years of age and to demonstrate the potential benefits of the treatment on the basis of well-being and quality of life of studied patients...

BACKGROUND: Distortion of the terminal portion of the QRS in the initial electrocardiogram (ECG) is a strong predictor of adverse outcome in myocardial infarction. Our purpose is to assess the relationship of distortion of QRS and other ECG characteristics with older age. METHODS AND RESULTS: We analysed 634 consecutive patients (age 62.6 +/- 13.7, 77% male) admitted in the first 12 hours of ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Two groups of age were defined: < 75 years-old and >or= 75 years-old...

OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to use intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) to compare octogenarians versus patients <65 years of age with regard to culprit lesion morphology in acute myocardial infarction (MI). BACKGROUND: Although octogenarians represent the fastest-growing segment of our population and have a higher risk profile, they are underrepresented in therapeutic trials. METHODS: Between 2002 and 2005, 42 octogenarians and 52 patients <65 years of age underwent pre-intervention IVUS within 2 days from onset of an MI...
