  • The trial, which looked at 112 adults with documented coronary heart disease who also exhibited mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia during baseline screening, found that after six weeks, 34.2 percent of escitalopram patients had no mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia during the three mental stressors versus 17.5 percent in the placebo group.

  • The odds ratio for mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia was 2.62 in the placebo group (p=0.04) compared to the drug group. (acc.org)
  • However, the study investigators did note that association between escitalopram and mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia improvement disappeared after adjustment for sex and baseline left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). (acc.org)
  • According to the study investigators, their findings could have clinical implications in reducing cardiac events in patients with mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia. (acc.org)
  • In the convalescent phase, one wishes to define and determine myocardial functional reserve, the presence of ischemia, and the future risk and prognosis. (springer.com)
  • During follow-up, coronary angiography was obtained as clinically indicated by symptoms or documentation of myocardial ischemia. (scribd.com)
  • H-FABP (Heart-type Fatty Acid Binding Protein) is a biomarker of myocardial ischemia, detectable as early as 30 minutes from chest pain onset and can facilitate the earlier management of patients with suspected ACS, alongside Troponin. (h-fabp.com)

  • Two of the reasons for this mismatch are disconnections between basic and clinical scientists and disconnections between clinical applications of the multiple available individual diagnostic methods, for example, electrocardiography and myocardial imaging. (physionet.org)
