OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine the predictive power of metabolic syndrome (MS) definitions on the prognosis in patients with myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation (STEMI). METHODS: We prospectively included 507 patients with STEMI who were admitted for primary percutaneous coronary intervention and could be identified for MS using the AHA-NHLBI, NCEP-ATP III and IDF definitions. After applying these criteria, we divided the group in patients with MS and without MS; we compared baseline characteristics, clinical findings and outcomes among these patients...

It remains unclear whether complete revascularization (CR) reduces the incidences of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) and adverse cardiac outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and multivessel coronary artery disease (MVD). A total of 453 hemodynamically stable patients with STEMI and MVD were retrospectively evaluated; the patients were divided into 2 groups according to interventional strategy: CR (n = 240) and incomplete revascularization (IR) (n = 213)...

BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests that oxidative stress plays a principal role in myocardial damage following ischemia/reperfusion events. Recent studies have shown that the antioxidant properties of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) may have cardioprotective effects in high doses, but-to the best of our knowledge-few studies have assessed this. OBJECTIVES: Our objective was to investigate the impact of high-dose NAC on ischemia/reperfusion injury. METHODS: We conducted a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial in which 100 consecutive patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were randomly assigned to the case group (high-dose NAC 100 mg/kg bolus followed by intracoronary NAC 480 mg during PCI then intravenous NAC 10 mg/kg for 12 h) or the control group (5% dextrose)...

BACKGROUND: Despite the restoration of epicardial flow after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI), myocardial reperfusion remains impaired in a significant proportion of patients. We performed a network meta-analysis to assess the effect of 7 intracoronary agents (adenosine, anisodamine, diltiazem, nicorandil, nitroprusside, urapidil, and verapamil) on the no-reflow phenomenon in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing PPCI. METHODS: Database searches were conducted to identify randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the 7 agents with each other or with standard PPCI...

BACKGROUND: It is known that women with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have higher mortality in comparison to men. While the reasons for this sex-based difference are not completely understood, biologic differences and disparities in care have been implicated. Whether these differences persist within an urban, regional STEMI system of care with defined protocols is unclear. Our objective was to explore sex-related effects in outcomes in a large regional system of care...

The use of cobalt-chromium everolimus-eluting stents (CoCr-EES) for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) reduces the incidence of stent thrombosis compared with bare metal stents, and a substantial difference is apparent in the initial 2 weeks. However, vascular behavior during this early period remains unclear. This was a prospective study (MECHANISM-AMI-2W) to investigate early vascular responses in STEMI patients immediately after CoCr-EES implantation and at 2-week follow-up using frequency domain-optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT)...

Coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is an uncommon anomaly, usually found in 1.2-2% of patients undergoing coronary angiography, defined as a segment of the coronary artery that has a diameter of more than 1.5 times the normal adjacent segments. Atherosclerosis is considered as the cause of half of the CAE cases. We herein present a 65-year-old Asian male with past medical history of Kawasaki disease (KD) who developed recurrent episodes of inferior wall ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) despite treatment with dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT)...

Introduction The History, Electrocardiogram (ECG), Age, Risk Factors, and Troponin (HEART) score is a decision aid designed to risk stratify emergency department (ED) patients with acute chest pain. It has been validated for ED use, but it has yet to be evaluated in a prehospital setting. Hypothesis A prehospital modified HEART score can predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) among undifferentiated chest pain patients transported to the ED. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of patients with chest pain transported by two county-based Emergency Medical Service (EMS) agencies to a tertiary care center was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) relates to the worse prognosis of patients with myocardial infarction despite successful reperfusion treatment. There is no evidence of early detectable biomarkers to predict risk for the future development of LVA. The aim of our study was to investigate the possible predictive value of peri-procedural hematological parameters for the LVA. METHODS: A total of 281 patients with acute anterior ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) were enrolled...

It remains unclear if the developmental trajectories of a specific inflammatory biomarker during the acute phase of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) provide outcome prediction. By applying latent class growth modeling (LCGM), we identified three distinctive trajectories of CD14++CD16+ monocytes using serial flow cytometry assays from day 1 to day 7 of symptom onset in 96 de novo STEMI patients underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Membership in the high-hump-shaped trajectory (16.8%) independently predicted adverse cardiovascular outcomes during a median follow-up of 2...
