OBJECTIVE: ABO antigens are highly abundant in many human cell types, including platelets, vascular endothelium, and red blood cells. The presence of a thrombus is associated with adverse clinical outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We reviewed the relationship between ABO blood groups and thrombus burden in patients with STEMI. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We carried out a retrospective study of 396 patients with STEMI who did not have an ABO blood group or thrombus burden...

BACKGROUND: Correlation of ST-segment elevation on the 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) with the expected affected coronary territory is established in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). In patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), correlation of ischemic ECG abnormalities with the affected coronary territory has not been well-established. We sought to investigate the correlation of electrocardiographic abnormalities with the location of 1-vessel obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with both STEMI and NSTEMI...

BACKGROUND: Although octogenarians constitute a fast-growing portion of cardiovascular patients, few data are available on the outcome of patients aged ≥85 years with ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI). METHODS AND RESULTS: We analyzed 126 consecutive patients aged ≥85 years (age 88±2 years) with STEMI, undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) within 12 hours from symptoms onset. Long-term follow-up (median 898 days) was obtained for the 102 patients surviving the index-hospitalization...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to investigate the effect of post-dilatation on angiographic and intracoronary imaging parameters in the setting of primary percutaneous coronary intervention comparing the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable scaffold (BRS) with the everolimus-eluting metallic stent (EES). BACKGROUND: Routine post-dilatation of BRS has been suggested to improve post-procedural angiographic and subsequent device-related clinical outcomes. METHODS: In the ABSORB STEMI TROFI II trial, 191 patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction were randomly assigned to treatment with BRS (n = 95) or EES (n = 96)...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility and clinical results following a pre-specified bioresorbable scaffold (Absorb BVS) implantation strategy in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). BACKGROUND: Concerns were raised about the safety of Absorb because a non-negligible rate of thrombosis was reported within 30 days and at midterm follow-up after primary percutaneous coronary intervention. METHODS: This was a prospective, multicenter study of patients with STEMI (<75 years of age with symptom onset <12 h) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention with Absorb following a dedicated implantation protocol...

CCN2/Connective tissue growth factor seems to be involved in development of cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis, but a possible cardioprotective role in left ventricular (LV) remodelling following myocardial infarction has also been suggested. The main objectives of the study were therefore to investigate whether circulating CCN2 levels were associated with infarct size, LV function, adverse remodelling or clinical outcome in two cohorts of patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). CCN2 was measured in 988 patients 18 hours after PCI and clinical events were recorded after 55 months in the BAMI cohort...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have revealed that high shock index (SI) is a risk factor for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients. These studies do not give a systematic review in this issue. Therefore, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine the effect of high SI on the prognosis of AMI patients. METHODS: We did a systematic search of PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library, using various combinations of keywords such as "shock index," "shock-index," "acute myocardial infarction," "ST elevation myocardial infarction," "non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction," "STEMI," "NSTEMI," "AMI," and "MI" for eligible studies published up to December 23, 2016...

Left ventricular remodelling (LVr) occurs post myocardial infarction (MI), predisposing people to heart failure (HF). LV mechanics and morphology are important in this process. We hence sort to characterize LV mechanics and geometry in a post-MI rodent model. Thirty-two male Sprague-Dawley rats (150-200 g) sustained MI (n = 24) or sham (Sham; n = 8) surgery. In another six sham rats invasive blood pressure measurements were performed. Ultrasound imaging was done at baseline, and 1, 3, 7, 14, 30 and 60 days following surgery, and LV mechanics and morphology assessed...

BACKGROUND: A specific ECG pattern of presentation of ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI), characterized by "triangular QRS-ST-T waveform" (TW), has been associated with poor in-hospital prognosis but longitudinal data on its incidence and clinical impact are lacking. We prospectively evaluated the incidence and prognostic meaning of the TW pattern in a cohort of consecutive STEMI patients. METHODS: All STEMI patients who presented within 12h of symptoms onset and showed no complete bundle branch block or paced ventricular rhythm were included...

BACKGROUND: Generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS) frequently lead to emergency inpatient referrals. Laboratory blood values are routinely performed on admission to detect underlying causes and metabolic or cardiac complications. Our goal was to assess the nature and frequency of complications occurring in association with GTCS. METHODS: We retrospectively extracted data from emergency protocols and discharge letters of adult patients admitted to the Department of Epileptology between 01/2010 and 06/2015...

INTRODUCTION: Migraine has consistently been associated with increased risk of ischemic stroke, while the evidence for a relation with other types of stroke or coronary outcomes is limited. We examined the association between migraine and stroke and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) subtypes and the influence of potential confounding factors. METHODS: All first-time hospital contacts for stroke (n=155,216) or ACS (n=97,799) were identified in Danish National Patient Registers and matched with 2 control groups of the background population...

INTRODUCTION: The myocardium at risk (MaR) represents the quantitative ischemic area destined to myocardial infarction (MI) if no reperfusion therapy is initiated. Different ECG scores for MaR have been developed, but there is no consensus as to which should be preferred. OBJECTIVE: Comparisons of ECG scores and Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) for determining MaR. METHODS: MaR was determined by 3 different ECG scores, and by CMR in ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI) patients from the MITOCARE cardioprotection trial...

BACKGROUND: Hospital length of stay after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) has reduced, resulting in more limited patient education during admission. Therefore, systematic participation in cardiac rehabilitation (CR) has become more essential. We aimed to identify patient-related factors that are associated with participation in and completion of a CR programme. METHODS: We identified 3,871 consecutive AMI patients who underwent pPCI between 2003 and 2011...

Bleeding is a major complication in patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Several studies suggested that Asians are more susceptible to bleeding when treated with antiplatelets, anticoagulants, and thrombolytic agents. In our study, we aimed to investigate the association between Asian ethnicity and bleeding events in patients who presented with STEMI. We analyzed the Nationwide Inpatient Sample database from 2002 to 2013 and identified patients hospitalized with a primary diagnosis of STEMI...

INTRODUCTION: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) could be considered to be a state of inflammation. Many inflammatory markers have been evaluated in the AMI setting so far. Presepsin (PSP) is a novel biomarker for diagnosis and prognosis of systemic inflammation that has not been studied in the AMI setting to date. In this study, we aimed to examine serum PSP levels in patients with acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Forty-eight patients with STEMI and fifty healthy controls without coronary artery disease, verified by coronary angiography, were included in the study...
