Atman P Shah, Sandeep Nathan
The diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) encompasses ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non-ST-segment elevation ACS (non-STEMI and unstable angina). In recent years, there have been improvements in the rates of death, cardiogenic shock, and recurrent myocardial infarction in patients with ACS, primarily due to the introduction of new pharmacological and interventional therapies, as well as the introduction of and adherence to new treatment guidelines. However, ACS still represents a considerable public health burden...

BACKGROUND: Ischemia-reperfusion injury following ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is a leading determinant of clinical outcome. In experimental models of myocardial ischemia, succinate accumulation leading to mitochondrial dysfunction is a major cause of ischemia-reperfusion injury; however, the potential importance and specificity of myocardial succinate accumulation in human STEMI is unknown. We sought to identify the metabolites released from the heart in patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention for emergency treatment of STEMI...
