OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the prevalence of silent myocardial infarction (MI) in patients presenting with first acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and its relation with mortality and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) at long-term follow-up. BACKGROUND: Up to 54% of MI occurs without apparent symptoms. The prevalence and long-term prognostic implications of previous silent MI in patients presenting with seemingly first AMI are unclear. METHODS: A 2-center observational longitudinal study was performed in 392 patients presenting with first AMI between 2003 and 2013, who underwent late gadolinium enhancement cardiac magnetic resonance (LGE-CMR) examination within 14 days post-AMI...

BACKGROUND: Low triiodothyronine (T3) syndrome (LT3S) is frequently seen in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We examined the association between LT3S and severity of myocardial injury and determined whether LT3S adds predictive value over thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) risk score for in-hospital cardiovascular (CV) death. METHODS: Of 2459 AMI patients, 529 pairs of euthyroid and LT3S individuals with similar baseline characteristics were identified using 1:1 propensity score matching...

Worldwide, more than 7 million people experience acute myocardial infarction (AMI) every year (1), and although substantial reduction in mortality has been obtained in recent decades, one-year mortality rates are still in the range of 10%. Among patients who survive AMI, 20% suffer a second cardiovascular event in the first year and approximately 50% of major coronary events occur in those with a previous hospital discharge diagnosis of AMI (2). Despite the evidence that lifestyle changes and risk factors management strongly improve long-term prognosis, preventive care post-AMI remains sub-optimal...

In this study we aimed to directly compare the short and long-term prognosis of nondialysis patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), dialysis patients, and patients with preserved renal function after acute myocardial infarction (AMI).AMI in patients with CKD is a catastrophic event associated with high medical expenditures and dismal survival. However, there is little research comparing post-AMI outcomes between patients with CKD who were and were not receiving dialysis.The retrospective cohort study included patients with AMI (n = 158,125) in the Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database who were treated March 1998 and December 2009...

BACKGROUND: Little data is available on short- and long-term survival in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We aimed to examine the association of PAD and 28-day case fatality as well as long-term mortality in a population-based sample of patients with incident AMI. METHODS: In this secondary analysis of data from the German MONICA/KORA Myocardial Infarction Registry 4307 patients aged 28-74years with incident AMI with and without history of PAD (information derived from medical chart) were included...

Although myocardial rupture occurs in only 2% to 4% of cases of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), there is a high mortality rate due to acute cardiogenic shock. We present the anatomopathological findings of three cases of myocardial rupture in autopsied hearts in the last 30 years, with a diagnosis of cardiac rupture in acute myocardial infarction. In these 30 years the percentage of AMI with myocardial rupture was 0.2%. Risk factors for post-AMI myocardial rupture include older age, atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus and systemic arterial hypertension...

BACKGROUND: Exercise intensity is a particularly important determinant of physiological responses to exercise training in patients with acute myocardial infarction. Heart rate (HR) is commonly used as a practical way of prescribing and monitoring exercise as specific intensities based on a linear relationship between the percentage of maximum HR (%HRmax ) and the percentage of maximum oxygen consumption (%VO2max ) regardless of age, gender, or exercise mode. OBJECTIVE: To examine the change in variability in the correlation between %HRmax and %VO2max after acute myocardial infarction...

In 2015, The Department of Health published the first annual report of the "National Healthcare Quality Reporting System." Connolly Hospital was reported to a mortality rate within 30 days post-Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) of 9.87 per 100 cases which was statistically significantly higher than the national rate. We carried out a retrospective audit of patients who were HIPE-coded as having died within 30 days of AMI from 2011-2013 and identified 42 patients. On review, only 23 patients (54.8%) were confirmed as having had an AMI...

The aim of this study is to investigate the cardioprotective effects of morroniside in rats following acute myocardial infarction. An acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was induced by ligating the anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) [1]. Following AMI, morroniside was administered intragastrically for 24 h at doses of 45, 90, and 180 mg/kg, respectively. Biomarkers such as creatine kinase (CK-MB), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), ɑ-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (ɑ-HBDH), and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) activities in AMI rats in the serum were detected with commercial kits [2]...

OBJECTIVES: The extracellular matrix is involved in wound repair after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We investigated whether matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMP)-1, and the MMP inducer (EMMPRIN) are associated with infarct size, left ventricular function, and clinical outcome in ST-elevation-MI (STEMI). METHODS: In 243 STEMI patients, circulating EMMPRIN, MMP-9, and TIMP-1 were analyzed 3 days and 3 months post-AMI...

Diabetes is a risk factor for worse outcomes following acute myocardial infarction (AMI). In this study, we tested the hypothesis that SDF-1:CXCR4 expression is compromised in post-AMI in diabetes, and that reversal of this defect can reverse the adverse effects of diabetes. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) isolated from green fluorescent protein (GFP) transgenic mice (control MSC) were induced to overexpress stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1). SDF-1 expression in control MSC and SDF-1-overexpressing MSC (SDF-1:MSC) were quantified using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)...

Neuroglobin (NGB) is an oxygen-binding protein that is mainly expressed in nervous tissues where it is considered to be neuroprotective during ischemic brain injury. Interestingly, transgenic mice overexpressing NGB reveal cytoprotective effects on tissues lacking endogenous NGB, which might indicate a therapeutic role for NGB in a broad range of ischemic conditions. In the present study, we investigated the effect of NGB overexpression on survival as well as on the size and occurrence of myocardial infarctions (MI) in a mouse model of acute MI (AMI) and a model of advanced atherosclerosis (ApoE-/- Fbn1C1039G+/- mice), in which coronary plaques and MI develop in mice being fed a Western-type diet...

BACKGROUND: Mortality rates in females who survived acute myocardial infarction (AMI) exceed those in males. Differences between sexes in age, cardiovascular risk factors and revascularization therapy have been proposed as possible reasons. OBJECTIVE: To select sets of female and male patients comparable in respect of relevant risk factors in order to compare the sex-specific risk in a systematic manner. METHODS: Data of the ISAR-RISK and ART studies were investigated...

BACKGROUND: Hospitalizations for acute myocardial infarctions (AMIs) are associated with changes in statin adherence. It is unclear to what extent adherence changes, which patients are likely to change, and how post-discharge follow-up is associated with statin adherence change. METHODS AND RESULTS: This retrospective study used Medicare data for all fee-for-service beneficiaries 66 years and older with an AMI hospitalization in 2008-2010 and statin use before their index AMI...

BackgroundThe degree and time course of platelet inhibition using ticagrelor can vary during the acute phase and the following stable period after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The optimal level of platelet inhibition during the various stages of AMI remains an open question. The aim of the current study is to compare the antiplatelet efficacy of two ticagrelor maintenance dose regimens (60 mg b.i.d. vs 90 mg b.i.d.) in stable patients following an initial strategy with ticagrelor 90 mg b.i.d. during the first month after AMI...

BACKGROUND: Several cell-based therapies for adjunctive treatment of acute myocardial infarction have been investigated in multiple clinical trials, but the timing of transplantation remains controversial. We conducted a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to investigate the effects of timing on bone marrow-derived cell (BMC) therapy in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS: A systematic literature search of PubMed, MEDLINE, and Cochrane Evidence-Based Medicine databases from January 2000 to June 2017 was performed on randomized controlled trials with at least a 3-month follow-up for patients with AMI undergoing emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and receiving intracoronary BMC transfer thereafter...

Postacute myocardial infarction (AMI) readmissions are common among Medicare beneficiaries (≥65 years) and are associated with significant resource utilization. However, patterns of AMI readmissions for younger age groups in the United States are not known. In the Nationwide Readmissions Database, a nationally representative all-payer database of inpatient hospitalizations, we identified 212,171 index AMI hospitalizations in January to November 2013, weighted to represent 478,247 hospitalizations nationally (mean age 66...
