The aim of the present study was to evaluate the use of preoperative high-dose atorvastatin to prevent the no-reflow phenomenon after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A total of 138 patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, admitted from March 2014 to January 2015, were enrolled and randomly divided into 3 groups of 46 individuals each. The groups included a control group in which patients were not treated with atorvastatin before PCI; a conventional-dose atorvastatin treatment group in which patients received a single dose of 20 mg at bedtime one day prior to PCI; and a high-dose atorvastatin treatment group in which patients were treated with 40 mg divided in two doses the day before PCI...

OBJECTIVES: This double blinded, placebo controlled randomized clinical trial studies the effect of exenatide on myocardial infarct size. The glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist exenatide has possible cardioprotective properties during reperfusion after primary percutaneous coronary intervention for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. METHODS: 191 patients were randomly assigned to intravenous exenatide or placebo initiated prior to percutaneous coronary intervention using 10μg/h for 30min followed by 0...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To analyze the use of reperfusion therapy in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in Catalonia in a registry performed in 2006 (IAM CAT III) and its comparison with 2 previous registries PATIENTS AND METHODS: Frequency of reperfusion therapy and time intervals between symptom onset - reperfusion therapy were the principal variables investigated. The IAM CAT I (June-December 2000) included 1,450 patients, the IAM CAT II (October 2002-April 2003) 1,386, and the IAM CAT III (October-December 2006) 367...

Mortality in untreated pulmonary embolism is high and short-term outcome depends on a timely diagnosis. In this case telemedicine involving 12-lead ECG and GSM-based communication between the patient in the ambulance and the telemedical staff resulted in remote pre-hospital suspicion of acute pulmonary embolism. The ambulance was referred directly to the nearest department of cardiology where acute CT and echocardiography confirmed the diagnosis. Acute trombolysis was successful. Telemedicine may be beneficial in other medical emergencies than acute myocardial infarction...

BACKGROUND: In a significant proportion of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), successful opening of the infarct related artery (IRA) does not translate into adequate perfusion at the tissue level. We hypothesised that deterioration of epicardial blood flow in early reperfusion may identify early signs of coronary microvascular injury. METHODS: In 272 consecutive patients (age 56.9+/-10.4 years) with AMI treated by primary angioplasty (PCI), coronary blood flow (Trombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) scale and corrected TIMI frame count (cTFC)) was evaluated before [B], immediately after [O] and 15 min after [O15] opening of the IRA...

PURPOSE: To describe the use of myocardial reperfusion strategies (percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty-PTCA and intravenous trombolysis) whenever it is possible to use emergency cinecoronariography in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS: The records of patients admitted with initial diagnosis of AMI, until six hours after the beginning of symptoms, were reviewed retrospectively, between March/92 and December/93. RESULTS: One hundred forty-three patients were admitted with suspected AMI...
