INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) network activation by a noncardiologist reduces delay times but may increase the rate of false-positive STEMI diagnoses. We aimed to determine the prevalence, predictors, and clinical impact of false-positive activations within the Catalonian STEMI network (Codi Infart). METHODS: From January 2010 through December 2011, all consecutive patients treated within the Codi Infart network were included...

BACKGROUND: A prospective single-center interventional cohort study was conducted to evaluate the effects of a 5-week comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation program on terms exercise capacity, quality of life, echocardiographic findings and autonomic modulation after first-time myocardial infarction. METHODS: We studied 37 consecutive post-myocardial infartion patients (mean age 66 years). All patients began a 5-week cardiac rehabilitation supervised training. The exercise program consisted of 40 minutes of training, three times a week, on a cycle ergometer at 60-80% of the maximal heart rate...

Myocardial infarction (MI) is the leading cause of death worldwide, and extensive research has therefore been performed to find a cure. Neuregulin-1 (NRG) is a growth factor involved in cardiac repair after MI. We previously described how biocompatible and biodegradable microparticles, which are able to release NRG in a sustained manner, represent a valuable approach to avoid problems related to the short half-life after systemic administration of proteins. The effectiveness of this strategy could be improved by combining NRG with several cytokines involved in cardiac regeneration...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate the association between the ABO blood groups and the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and myocardial infartion (MI) in a young Taiwanese population. METHODS: We retrospectively recruited 277 consecutive subjects (men younger than 45 years and women younger than 55 years) who underwent coronary angiography (136 with documented CAD and 129 without CAD) at our center, between 2005 and 2008. Their ABO blood groups were determined using standard agglutination techniques...

The article provides the data on linseed-oil contained alpha-linolenic acid (C18:3), one of omega-3 family PUFA acids, and its metabolites in the body-ecosatrtraenoic acid (C20:5), docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6) and docosapentaenoic acid (C22:5). There was presented the role of all these acid in decreasing the risk of heart diseases, primarily the myocardial infartion and coronary heart disease. Food enrichment by linseed-oil alpha-linolenic acid was proposed.

2,3,5,4'-tetra-hydroxystilbene-2-O-glucoside (THSG), the water-soluble active components extracted from dried tuber root of Polygonum multiflorum (Polygonaceae), can promote the release of nitric oxide (NO) from vascular endothelial cells and has strong antioxidation. The postconditioning's protection of THSG on cardiac ischemia-reperfusion injury and the mechanism were investigated. After reperfusion for 3 h following occlusion of rat left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) for 30 min, SalphaT recovery speed, arrhythmia and cardiac infarct size were observed...

Myocardial infarction is the leading cause of congestive heart failure and death in industrializated countries. The cellular cardiomyoplasty has emerged as an alternative treatment in the regeneration of infarted myocardial tissue. In animals' models, different cellular lines such as cardiomyocites, skeletal myoblasts, embryonic stem cells and adult mesenchymal stem cells have been used, resulting in an improvement in ventricular function and decrease in amount of infarcted tissue. The first three cells lines have disvantages as they are allogenics and are difficult to obtain...

Patients presenting with unstable angina and non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (UA/NSTEM) have a highly variable course. Optimal management is critical because of the high risk of death or myocardial infarction (MI) in the ensuing 30 days. In this article, we review the therapeutic options available to clinicians. Anti-ischemic therapy with beta-blockers and nitrates should be considered in all patients without contraindications. Aspirin remains a cornerstone of antiplatelet therapy and has been shown to substantially reduce the risk of death or MI...

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...

A patient with chronic right heart failure and probable tricuspid insufficiency associated with an inferior myocardial infartion is described. Angiograms demonstrated total occlusion of the right coronary artery at its origin, a patent venous bypass graft to the mid-right coronary artery and hypokinesia of the inferior wall of both the right and left vebtricles. Clinical data indicated a greater impairment of right than of left ventricular function. It is proposed that infarction of the right ventricle resulted in chronic right heart failure and tricuspid insufficiency...
