INTRODUCTION: In secondary prevention (SP) of coronary artery disease (CAD), in particular after an acute myocardial infarction (MI), a better knowledge and self-management by the patient may have various supports. The Log book (LB) for CAD patients in Côte d'Or, was created in 2010 by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals of Côte d'Or, from a regional care network. This pilot study evaluated LB as novel support for SP after acute MI. METHODS: A prospective study on 183 patients hospitalised for an acute MI in the region of Côte d'Or from 1st May to 30th October 2010...

BACKGROUND: The presence of pre-infarction angina (PIA) has been shown to confer cardioprotection after ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, the clinical impact of PIA in non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) remains to be determined. METHODS AND RESULTS: From the obseRvatoire des Infarctus de Côte d'Or (RICO) survey, 1541 consecutive patients admitted in intensive care unit with a first NSTEMI were included. Patients who experienced chest pain <7 days before the episode leading to admission were defined as having PIA and were compared with patients without PIA...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation (STEMI) is a medical emergency requiring specific management, with the main aim of achieving reperfusion as quickly as possible. Guidelines from medical societies have defined optimal management, with proven efficacy on morbi-mortality. AIMS: Our study aimed to evaluate trends in practices between 2002 and 2010 in the emergency management of STEMI in a single French department, namely Cote d'Or. METHODS: All patients admitted with a first STEMI to one of the six participating coronary care units (private or public) in Cote d'Or since January 2001 were included in a prospective registry (obseRvatoire des Infarctus de Côte d'Or [RICO])...

BACKGROUND: High plasma aldosterone levels at presentation are correlated to poor outcome after ST elevation acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Whether there is a relationship between aldosterone levels and outcome in a broader spectrum of patients admitted for AMI defined by the new definition based on troponin levels remains unknown. METHODS: Plasma aldosterone, C-reactive protein, and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) were measured in 471 patients, 24 and 72 hours after admission for AMI defined by the new definition...

Mucor spp. are rarely pathogenic in healthy adults, but can cause fatal infections in patients with immuosuppression and diabetes mellitus. Documented mucor fungemia is a very rare condition in the literature. We described a fungemia and cutaneous mucormycosis case due to Mucor circinelloides in an 83-year-old woman with diabetes mellitus who developed acute left frontoparietal infarctus while hospitalized in a neurological intensive care unit. The diagnosis was made based on the growth of fungi in the blood, skin biopsy cultures, and a histopathologic examination of the skin biopsy...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to show that differences of mortality, in acute myocardial infarction, observed between hospitals are not necessarily linked to a bad application of guidelines but can be linked to differences in the risk profile of the populations. METHODS: Two populations admitted for ST and non-ST elevation myocardial infarction in the same region in 2006 were compared: the population of Chalon-sur-Saône's hospital with a standard population from the observatoire des Infarctus de Côte d'Or (RICO)...

BACKGROUND: Randomized studies have shown a reduction in cardiovascular events associated with low doses of statin among hypertensive patients at only moderate cardiovascular risk. The hypothesis of the present study was that statin therapy initiated during hospitalization could improve the long-term outcome after acute myocardial infarction (MI) in hypertensive patients. METHODS: From the French regional obserRvatoire des Infarctus de Côte d'Or (RICO) survey, 1076 patients with a history of hypertension, surviving acute MI were included...

OBJECTIVES: Hyperhomocysteinaemia is associated with cardiovascular events in nondiabetic individuals. The present study was aimed to explore the implication of hyperhomocysteinemia in development of cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes. DESIGN: A total of 185 patients with type 2 diabetes (115 women and 70 men, 30 to 93 years of age) have been included consecutively in the ambulatory unit at the Saint-Philibert Hospital. For each patient the concentration of homocysteine, cholesterol and triglyceride levels and HbA1c have been measured...

Hyperglycemia has been shown to be a powerful predictor of worse outcome after ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), which could be related to impaired myocardial reperfusion. This study investigated the association between hyperglycemia and ST-segment resolution (STR) after thrombolysis. From the French regional Observatoire des Infarctus de Côte-d'Or survey, admission glucose in 371 patients with STEMIs who were treated by lysis<12 hours was analyzed. The single worst lead electrocardiogram before and 90 minutes after lysis was analyzed, and patients were divided into 3 groups according to the degree of STR: none (<30%), partial (30% to 70%), or complete (>or=70%)...

During coronary angioplasty, the association of platelet inhibitors and antithrombin agents is required to prevent myocardial infarction. Bivalirudine, a synthetic direct thrombin inhibitor, has been widely validated in this context and has shown its efficacy and safety in several comparative studies. It is officially recommended as a replacement of NFH and LMWH associated or not with anti-GPIIb/IIIa agents because at comparable efficacy it causes fewer bleeding complications. In acute coronary syndromes without ST elevation, anti GPIIb/IIIa agents reduce angioplasty-related complications and mortality, especially in high risk patients in salvage situations...

This a retrospective study on 46 patients conducted over a 9-year period. These patients had an acute myocardial infarctus (AMI) confirmed wilth changes on the electrocardiogram and raised cardiac enzymes. However, the subsequent coronary angiography showed normal in all these patients. The purpose of our study is to assess epidemiologic, clinical, pronostic and therapeutic features of AMI with angiographically normal coronary arteries and compare the results obtained with those of AMI with coronary artery disease...
