OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of gender upon the prognosis and medical care in a regional acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction management network. DESIGN: An observational study was made of consecutive patients entered in a prospective database. SCOPE: The Catalan acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction management network. PATIENTS: Patients treated between January 2010 and December 2011. INTERVENTIONS: Primary angioplasty, thrombolysis or conservative management...

OBJECTIVE: To study the protective effects of Panax quinquefolium 20s-protopanaxdiolsaponins extracted from leaves of P. quinquefolium (PQDS) on acute myocardial infarction(AMI) in dogs. METHOD: The parameters of myocardial infart size, the serum CK and LDH activity, myocardial metabolism, free radicals and coronary circulation etc were determined by using the model of ligation of LAD in the anaesthetized open-chest dogs. RESULT: In dogs treated with PQDS(in a dosage of 10 and 20 mg...

We present the case of an 60-year-old male patient that after a acute myocardial infarction inferior diagnostic was subjected to a fibrinolysis with streptokinase. The evolution from the cardiologic point of view was favourable, but at fourth day postacute myocardial infartion he starts with peripherics vasculars symptoms, pain and livedo reticularis in lower part of the body. A symptomatic treatment was made requiring amputation of his fifth right toe. The evolution was towards healing without any organic afectation at another level...

Thrombolysis is proposed for the acute treatment of cerebral infarction as it is able to recanalize occluded arteries and thus potentially restore normal perfusion of the cerebral parenchyma, but the results concerning the efficacy of this treatment are still inconclusive. However, it has been fully demonstrated that thrombolytic treatment, leads to a significant reduction in mortality, in patients with acute myocardial infarction. Data from all of the pilot studies using SK or tPA treatment in acute stroke are described in this review, which underlines the incidence of hemorrhagic transformation (hemorrhagic infart and parenchymal hematoma) and its possible correlation to clinical worsening...

This study examines the prognostic implications of ischemia within the territory of a prior acute myocardial infarction (AMI) vs ischemia at a distance, which develops late after AMI. Sixty-one consecutive patients who underwent both exercise thallium-201 (TI-201) imaging and cardiac catheterization for evaluation of chest pain that developed after discharge from the hospital for AMI form the study group. Mean interval between infarction to the TI-201 study was 10 +/- 17 months. Initial and 2-hour delay TI-201 images were analyzed quantitatively to determine the presence and location (within vs outside the prior infarct zone) of TI-201 redistribution, a marker of ischemic viable myocardium...

The renin-angiotensin system is activated in heart failure in proportion to the severity of the haemodynamic derangement and to diuretic dose. Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors reduce circulating levels of angiotensin II and aldosterone and, in some patients, plasma noradrenaline, vasopressin and cortisol. Typically there is potassium retention and a minor increase in plasma potassium, but cumulative sodium balance may increase or decrease depending on pretreatment fluid and haemodynamic status and on policy regarding diuretic dose...
