OBJECTIVES: to analyse the effect of distance between the Municipality of residence and the nearest hospital on out-of-hospital mortality rate of patients died for acute myocardial infarction (AMI). DESIGN: analysis of out-of-hospital mortality using a record linkage database. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Sicilian Municipalities; 4,999 deaths with acute myocardial infarction as primary cause of death, by excluding patients hospitalised within the 15 days before the death event...

AIM: To critically discuss the use of tibolone (T), in light of a series of very recent double-blind placebo (PL) controlled trials (LISA, LIFT, OPAL, THEBES, LIBERATE) conducted worldwide in a large number of postmenopausal women (PMW). METHODS: The most relevant publications on T therapy in PMW were considered with emphasis on menopausal symptoms, quality of life, sexuality, bone, cardiovascular system (CVS) and oncologic risk. RESULTS: T significantly relieves climacteric symptoms and improves mood and sexual well-being (LISA)...

UNLABELLED: Chronic myocardial infarction represents one of the most important problems of actual clinical medicine because their incidence is growing especially at young adults (< 45 years) and their mortality with no treatment is high in first month after acute myocardial infarction (50%). When cardiovascular disease is associated with diabetes mellitus, evolution of patients is more serious. AIM: To compare the disease evolution for two groups of patients--one with patients who have purely chronic myocardial infarction and other with patients who have chronic myocardial infarction associated with glycoregulation disturbances (diabetes mellitus, impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose)...

A serendipitous discovery by William Smith Tillett in 1933, followed by many years of work with his student Sol Sherry, laid a sound foundation for the use of streptokinase as a thrombolytic agent in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction. The drug found initial clinical application in combating fibrinous pleural exudates, hemothorax, and tuberculous meningitis. In 1958, Sherry and others started using streptokinase in patients with acute myocardial infarction and changed the focus of treatment from palliation to "cure...

Cardiogenic shock (CHC) associated to acute myocardial infarct has high mortality and their manifestations are heterogenous. In our institution historical mortality, was 98%, but with different methods of reperfusion, its reduced to 53%. In other hand, with opportune clinical stratification is useful to improve the treatment strategy. This stratification on basis in clinical signs: age, infarction location, cardiac frequency and systemic arterial pressure, and hemodynamical valuation with the use of right catheterism with quantification miocardial work parameters like "Cardiac power" that is the product of flow and arterial pressure and that is of utility to know the "Miocardial reserve"...

By devoting World Health Day 1992 to the theme of heart health, it is the aim of the World Health Organization to increase public awareness of the worldwide dimensions of cardiovascular diseases, and to sound an alarm against their spread. Cardiovascular diseases are diseases of the highest social and medical importance. They are taking about 12 millions lives annually. Many victims are under the age of 65 years. Fortunatelly, many of the diseases could be prevented or postponed to the older age, as 3/4 of the cases are results of inadequate attitudes, knowledge, habits and behaviour...

A large multicenter cohort study, the DAI study, is being performed on patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who are followed by diabetic care units in Italy, to study the prevalence and incidence of macrovascular complications. The reference population consists of all patients visited at the participating units in the period September 1998-June 1999. Patients were randomly chosen so as to create a sample representative of the diabetic population visited at the units. Overall, 201 Italian diabetic care units participated in the study and 19,570 patients were included in the study...

A decrease in sexual activity after an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) for both women and men has been reported with one study suggesting that this reduction in sexual activity may precede rather than proceed the AMI. The present study compared the sexual activity of women and men before AMI to the sexual activity of a normative community sample of women and men, to examine whether the above reduction in sexual activity is especially characteristic of women and men who later incur an AMI. This study also investigated the association between selected medical and sociodemographic variables and sexual inactivity of women and men before an AMI...

From october '76 to march '79 at the Clinica Chirurgica I of the University of Bologna 50 renal graft have been performed with living donor in 8 cases and with cadaver donor in 42. In the living donor group there was one death for rejection and sepsis. The remaining 7 patients are all alive with normal renal function. Among the 42 patients with cadaver donor 6 died: 3 early (one for gastric hemorrage, one for necrosis of the ascending colon, and one for rejection) and 3 late (two following many rejection episodes and one for miocardial infarction)...

Exercise electrocardiograms were done on one thousand patients referred to the laboratory of exercise tests for: suggestive symptoms of acute heart failure, old miocardial infarction abnormal resting ECG, or evaluation of coronary reserve. The average value of cardiac rate reached for the group, was close to 80%. The maximum exercise loads managed by the men were superior to those of the women, and in general those managed in the negative test were superior in relation to the positive tests. Of the one thousand cases, 20...
