Anterior Wall Myocardial Infarction: MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.Inferior Wall Myocardial Infarction: MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.Myocardial Infarction: NECROSIS of the MYOCARDIUM caused by an obstruction of the blood supply to the heart (CORONARY CIRCULATION).Coronary Angiography: Radiography of the vascular system of the heart muscle after injection of a contrast medium.Ventricular Function, Left: The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the left HEART VENTRICLE. Its measurement is an important aspect of the clinical evaluation of patients with heart disease to determine the effects of the disease on cardiac performance.Electrocardiography: Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.Heart Rupture, Post-Infarction: Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.Heart Ventricles: The lower right and left chambers of the heart. The right ventricle pumps venous BLOOD into the LUNGS and the left ventricle pumps oxygenated blood into the systemic arterial circulation.Echocardiography: Ultrasonic recording of the size, motion, and composition of the heart and surrounding tissues. The standard approach is transthoracic.Coronary Vessels: The veins and arteries of the HEART.Infarction: Formation of an infarct, which is NECROSIS in tissue due to local ISCHEMIA resulting from obstruction of BLOOD CIRCULATION, most commonly by a THROMBUS or EMBOLUS.Myocardial Reperfusion: Generally, restoration of blood supply to heart tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. Reperfusion can be induced to treat ischemia. Methods include chemical dissolution of an occluding thrombus, administration of vasodilator drugs, angioplasty, catheterization, and artery bypass graft surgery. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.Angioplasty, Balloon, Coronary: Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.Cell Wall: The outermost layer of a cell in most PLANTS; BACTERIA; FUNGI; and ALGAE. The cell wall is usually a rigid structure that lies external to the CELL MEMBRANE, and provides a protective barrier against physical or chemical agents.Time Factors: Elements of limited time intervals, contributing to particular results or situations.Cerebral Infarction: The formation of an area of NECROSIS in the CEREBRUM caused by an insufficiency of arterial or venous blood flow. Infarcts of the cerebrum are generally classified by hemisphere (i.e., left vs. right), lobe (e.g., frontal lobe infarction), arterial distribution (e.g., INFARCTION, ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY), and etiology (e.g., embolic infarction).Ventricular Remodeling: The geometric and structural changes that the HEART VENTRICLES undergo, usually following MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION. It comprises expansion of the infarct and dilatation of the healthy ventricle segments. While most prevalent in the left ventricle, it can also occur in the right ventricle.Thrombolytic Therapy: Use of infusions of FIBRINOLYTIC AGENTS to destroy or dissolve thrombi in blood vessels or bypass grafts.Coronary Circulation: The circulation of blood through the CORONARY VESSELS of the HEART.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Prospective Studies: Observation of a population for a sufficient number of persons over a sufficient number of years to generate incidence or mortality rates subsequent to the selection of the study group.Myocardium: The muscle tissue of the HEART. It is composed of striated, involuntary muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC) connected to form the contractile pump to generate blood flow.Risk Factors: An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.Coronary Disease: An imbalance between myocardial functional requirements and the capacity of the CORONARY VESSELS to supply sufficient blood flow. It is a form of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA (insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle) caused by a decreased capacity of the coronary vessels.Ventricular Dysfunction, Left: A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.Myocardial Ischemia: A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).Heart: The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.Stroke Volume: The amount of BLOOD pumped out of the HEART per beat, not to be confused with cardiac output (volume/time). It is calculated as the difference between the end-diastolic volume and the end-systolic volume.Predictive Value of Tests: In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.Streptokinase: Streptococcal fibrinolysin . An enzyme produced by hemolytic streptococci. It hydrolyzes amide linkages and serves as an activator of plasminogen. It is used in thrombolytic therapy and is used also in mixtures with streptodornase (STREPTODORNASE AND STREPTOKINASE). EC 3.4.-.Follow-Up Studies: Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.Creatine Kinase: A transferase that catalyzes formation of PHOSPHOCREATINE from ATP + CREATINE. The reaction stores ATP energy as phosphocreatine. Three cytoplasmic ISOENZYMES have been identified in human tissues: the MM type from SKELETAL MUSCLE, the MB type from myocardial tissue and the BB type from nervous tissue as well as a mitochondrial isoenzyme. Macro-creatine kinase refers to creatine kinase complexed with other serum proteins.Prognosis: A prediction of the probable outcome of a disease based on a individual's condition and the usual course of the disease as seen in similar situations.Cardiac Catheterization: Procedures in which placement of CARDIAC CATHETERS is performed for therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.Myocardial Contraction: Contractile activity of the MYOCARDIUM.Coronary Care Units: The hospital unit in which patients with acute cardiac disorders receive intensive care.Cystocele: A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.Fibrinolytic Agents: Fibrinolysin or agents that convert plasminogen to FIBRINOLYSIN.Retrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.Coronary Artery Bypass: Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.Angina Pectoris: The symptom of paroxysmal pain consequent to MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA usually of distinctive character, location and radiation. It is thought to be provoked by a transient stressful situation during which the oxygen requirements of the MYOCARDIUM exceed that supplied by the CORONARY CIRCULATION.Tomography, Emission-Computed, Single-Photon: A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.Platelet Aggregation Inhibitors: Drugs or agents which antagonize or impair any mechanism leading to blood platelet aggregation, whether during the phases of activation and shape change or following the dense-granule release reaction and stimulation of the prostaglandin-thromboxane system.Cineangiography: Motion pictures of the passage of contrast medium through blood vessels.Angina, Unstable: Precordial pain at rest, which may precede a MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.Hemodynamics: The movement and the forces involved in the movement of the blood through the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM.Stents: Devices that provide support for tubular structures that are being anastomosed or for body cavities during skin grafting.Myocardial Revascularization: The restoration of blood supply to the myocardium. (From Dorland, 28th ed)Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.Recurrence: The return of a sign, symptom, or disease after a remission.Coronary Thrombosis: Coagulation of blood in any of the CORONARY VESSELS. The presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) often leads to MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.Heart Septum: This structure includes the thin muscular atrial septum between the two HEART ATRIA, and the thick muscular ventricular septum between the two HEART VENTRICLES.Coronary Artery Disease: Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.Tomography, X-Ray Computed: Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.Risk Assessment: The qualitative or quantitative estimation of the likelihood of adverse effects that may result from exposure to specified health hazards or from the absence of beneficial influences. (Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 1988)Shock, Cardiogenic: Shock resulting from diminution of cardiac output in heart disease.Hospital Mortality: A vital statistic measuring or recording the rate of death from any cause in hospitalized populations.Uterine Prolapse: Downward displacement of the UTERUS. It is classified in various degrees: in the first degree the UTERINE CERVIX is within the vaginal orifice; in the second degree the cervix is outside the orifice; in the third degree the entire uterus is outside the orifice.Myocardial Reperfusion Injury: Damage to the MYOCARDIUM resulting from MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION (restoration of blood flow to ischemic areas of the HEART.) Reperfusion takes place when there is spontaneous thrombolysis, THROMBOLYTIC THERAPY, collateral flow from other coronary vascular beds, or reversal of vasospasm.Acute Disease: Disease having a short and relatively severe course.

Low adiponectin blood concentration predicts left ventricular remodeling after ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention. (3/56)

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular remodeling (LVR), an increase in left ventricular end-diastolic volume index > or = 20%, is an adverse consequence of myocardial infarction. The aim of this study was to assess the association between LVR and adiponectin, which has been shown to protect against myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury. METHODS: In 75 patients echocardiographic examination was performed one year after ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, successfully treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). Two groups of patients were analyzed: those with LVR (n = 15) and those without LVR (n = 60). RESULTS: The predictors of LVR were: anterior myocardial infarction, glucose at admission, baseline C-reactive protein, adiponectin, and echocardiographic parameters: left ventricular end-diastolic and end-systolic volume indices, ejection fraction < 40% and left ventricular wall motion score index (WMSI) at discharge. On multivariable regression analysis, lower adiponectin level (OR = 0.67, 95% CI 0.49-0.91, p < 0.05) and higher WMSI (OR = 20.14, 95% CI 2.62-154.82, p < 0.01) were the only independent negative predictors of LVR. The optimal cut-off for adiponectin for predicting LVR was < or = 4.7 mg/mL (sensitivity: 73%, specificity: 85%) and this level increased the risk of LVR 15-fold (95% CI 4.05-59.87, p = 0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: Baseline low blood adiponectin concentration, along with WMSI, can be considered as a predictor of the LVR in male patients one year after myocardial infarction and pPCI.  (+info)

Complete atrioventricular block complicating acute anterior myocardial infarction can be reversed with acute coronary angioplasty. (7/56)

INTRODUCTION: A retrospective case series of acute anterior myocardial infarction (MI) patients complicated by complete atrioventricular block (AVB) treated with acute percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). CLINICAL PICTURE: Eight patients with anterior MI and complete AVB underwent acute PTCA between 2000 and 2005. Mean onset of complete AVB was 16.6 +/- 16.9 hours from chest pain onset. TREATMENT: All patients underwent successful PTCA to the left anterior descending artery. OUTCOME: Complete AVB resolved with PTCA in 88%; mean time of resolution was 89 +/- 144 minutes after revascularisation. One patient had permanent pacemaker implanted at Day 12 after developing an 8-second ventricular standstill during hospitalisation but not pacing-dependent on follow-up. The rhythm on discharge for the other surviving patients was normal sinus rhythm. CONCLUSION: This case series suggests that complete AVB complicating anterior MI is reversible with acute PTCA and survivors are not at increased risk of recurrent AVB. Nevertheless, this condition is associated with extensive myocardial damage and high mortality during the acute hospitalisation was not improved with correction of AVB with temporary pacing.  (+info)

Coronary flow velocity pattern and recovery of regional left ventricular function: the relationship observed in patients with reperfused acute myocardial infarction. (8/56)

Coronary flow velocity pattern (CFVP) recorded within 3 days of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has been reported to be useful in predicting left ventricular (LV) function. The aim of this prospective study was to investigate, via transthoracic Doppler echocardiography, whether the relationship between CFVP and recovery of LV function persists. Our study group comprised 37 patients with 1st anterior-wall acute myocardial infarction who underwent successful PCI for lesions in the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD). The CFVP in the LAD was recorded at 24-48 hours, 7 days, and 4 weeks after PCI. Myocardial contrast echocardiography was performed at 24-48 hours after PCI. The diastolic deceleration time (DDT) at each stage correlated significantly with the regional LV wall-motion score index at 6-month follow-up (r=-0.58 at 24-48 hr, -0.57 at day 7, and -0.50 at week 4; P <0.01 for all). The mean DDT increased over time. Optimal cutoff values for DDT to predict regional LV wall-motion score indices of <2.0 were 327 ms at 24-48 hours (sensitivity, 0.78; specificity, 0.64), 495 ms at day 7 (sensitivity, 0.75; specificity, 0.69), and 525 ms at week 4 (sensitivity, 0.83; specificity, 0.69). The DDT at 24-48 hours significantly correlated, better than the peak creatine kinase value, with reperfusion (r=0.68, P <0.01) as defined by myocardial contrast echocardiography. In conclusion, CFVP in the LAD can be used, within 4 weeks after PCI, to predict the recovery of regional LV function in patients with reperfused anterior-wall acute myocardial infarction.  (+info)

The heartmuscle itself is very limited in its capacity to extract oxygen in the blood that is being pumped. Only the inner layers (the endocardium) profit from this oxygenrich blood. The outer layers of the heart (the epicardium) are dependent on the coronary arteries for the supply of oxygen and nutrients. With aid of an ECG, the occluded coronary can be identified. This is valuable information for the clinician, because treatment and complications of for instance an anterior wall infarction is different than those of an inferior wall infarction. The anterior wall performs the main pump function, and decay of the function of this wall will lead to decrease of bloodpressure, increase of heartrate, shock and on a longer term: heart failure. An inferior wall infarction is often accompanied with a decrease in heartrate because of involvement of the sinusnode. Longterm effects of an inferior wall infarction are usually less severe than those of an anterior wall infarction. The heart is supplied of ...

Magnetic resonance tagging was used to calculate myocardial strains (15). All studies were obtained on a 1.0-tesla MR unit (Siemens, Erlangen, Germany). Tags are noninvasive markers placed on the myocardium by presaturating planes at end-diastole perpendicular to the subsequent imaging planes. They show up on the images as dark lines that move and deform with the myocardium on which they are inscribed. Five parallel short-axis planes and four radially oriented long-axis planes crossing the center of the LV were defined (Fig. 1). The gravitational centerline of the LV cavity was reached by the best fit connecting the center of the cavity at each of the different short-axis levels. Images were acquired at end-diastole and end-systole in all these planes, using the short-axis planes as tagging planes for the long-axis images and vice versa. By combining the short- and long-axis information, the entire LV wall, except for the apex, could be reconstructed into 32 small cuboids for which the ...

The simplicity of this equation system, especially when restricted to only a few species, makes it ideal for introducing undergraduates to mathematical modeling and research.. Tilman[1982] argues persuasively based on these equations that, with three nutrients available, at most three species may coexist, but this result contradicts the diversity of species in our ecosystem. Explaining the physical and biological processes that maintain diversity, including finding mathematical models that show how diverse ecosystems develop and interact, are overarching questions.. My current work includes identifying mechanisms that allow two species to coexist in nature, even though chemostat experiments and initial numerical models indicate one should out-compete and exclude the other species. Future work will include addressing the question by which mechanisms do meta-communities (Hanski[2004]), e.g. lakes connected by rivers, promote diversity in the ecosystem. This involves much more complicated ...

SCVS 2018 Abstracts: Statins Reduce Mortality And Failure To Rescue after Myocardial Infarction Following Aortobifemoral Bypass In Aortoiliac Occlusive Disease Patients
OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate regional morphology and function in patients in their first week after having a reperfused anterior myocardial infarction (MI) using magnetic resonance (MR) myocardial tagging. BACKGROUND: The mechanism of myocardial dysfunction in the remote, noninfarct-related regions is an unresolved issue to date. METHODS: Sixteen patients with a first reperfused transmural anterior MI were studied with MR tagging at 5 +/- 2 days after the event, and the results were compared with those of an age-matched control group regions. The left ventricle (LV) was divided into infarct, adjacent and remote regions. Magnetic resonance tagging provided information on the regional ventricular morphology and function. RESULTS: Morphologically, an increase of the circumferential radius of curvature was found in the remote myocardium, whereas the longitudinal radius of curvature was increased in all regions of the LV. A significant increase in apical sphericity was also found. A significant ...
Ten patients in the treatment group and 10 patients in the control group were enrolled in this prospective, randomized, double blinded study. Two weeks after myocardial infarction that was accompanied by successful recanalization and stent implantation, the patients of the treatment group received 10 μg/kg body weight per day (divided BID) G-CSF subcutaneously for treatment duration of maximum 5.0 days. In both groups, ejection fraction was evaluated with echocardiography and cardiac scan (Gated SPECT method) 10 days after myocardial infarction and after 6 months. Tei index was measured by echocardiography.. Results: No severe side effects of G-CSF treatment were observed. Ejection fraction determined by cardiac scan increased in the treatment group from 0.428 to 0.462 and from 0.470 to 0.496 in the control group but there was no significant improvement of left ventricular ejection fraction when the G-CSF treated group was compared to the controls (p=0.821 for cardiac scan and p=0.705 for ...

A 60-year-old male presented to the cardiologist for symptoms of palpitations. Over three months, he reported an increase in palpitations with a heart rate ranging in the 140s. He had an incident of acute right foot pain with a subsequent residual cool right foot and toe with numbness.. In follow-up, the patient was found to be in atrial flutter with a rate of 136. An echocardiogram showed severe left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction and a non-mobile round echodensity in the apex measuring 2.2cm, consistent with an LV thrombus.. He was admitted to the hospital for anticoagulation, and a cardiac MRI was ordered. ...

Rhabdomyolisis is a clinical and biochemical syndrome caused by the accumulation of toxic substances due to necrosis of skeletal muscle cells. Trauma has been considered the most common cause. The clinical manifestations range from asymptomatic CK rise to renal failure and death. A successful treatment lies on a prompt clinical suspicion, an intense intravenous volume overload and correction of electrolytic imbalance. Here we present the case of a 40 yearold man with an anterior acute myocardial infarction who underwent multiple electric shocks for ventricular fibrillation and CPR maneuvers with ensuing rhabdomyolisis and eventually a good late outcome..

Results Overall, a discordance between IMR and MVO was observed in 36.7% of cases, with 31 patients having MVO and IMR ≤40. Compared with patients with MVO and IMR ≤40, patients with both MVO and IMR ,40 had an 11.9-fold increased risk of final IS ,25% at 6 months (p = 0.001). Patients with MVO and IMR ≤40 had a significantly smaller IS at 6 months (p = 0.001), with significant regression in IS over time (34.4% [interquartile range (IQR): 27.3% to 41.0%] vs. 22.3% [IQR: 16.0% to 30.0%]; p = 0.001). ...

Horizontal plane projections of vectorcardiograms registered by the Frank lead system were analyzed in 36 patients with left ventricular hypertrophy and in 24 with left ventricular hypertrophy and associated anterior wall infarction. All were studied at autopsy. The 0.01-, 0.02-, 0.03-second, and maximum QRS vectors were compared with similar measurements in 60 control subjects previously reported. New criteria for the vector-cardiographic diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy have been outlined. Close agreement with earlier reported groups of patients with anteroseptal and anterolateral infarction was found, and findings by others in patients with left ventricular hypertrophy were confirmed.. The direction of the 0.02-second QRS vector allowed the separation of the infarct group from the left ventricular hypertrophy group and from the normal, whereas the direction of the 0.03-second and maximum QRS vectors separated left ventricular hypertrophy from the normal. The magnitude of the maximum ...

Adult Sprague-Dawley rats underwent middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion then were randomly treated with either: low dose CsA, MP, low dose CsA plus MP, high dose CsA, or vehicle. Ischemic animals that received low dose CsA, MP or vehicle displayed profound motor and neurological impairments at days 1-3 after stroke. In contrast, ischemic animals that received high dose CsA exhibited near normal motor and neurological functions throughout the test period. Of note, ischemic animals that received low dose CsA plus MP showed significantly less motor and neurological deficits at day 1, but thereafter ...
Of the clinical variables examined by multiple logistic regression analysis, only patient age and anterior wall myocardial infarction correlated with the need for urgent cardiac catheterization (p = 0.0016 and p = 0.017, respectively). Of the 75 patients undergoing urgent coronary angiography, only 39% had an occluded infarct-related artery. Emergency coronary angioplasty was performed in 49% of the patients and coronary artery bypass graft surgery was performed urgently in 3%. Despite these interventions, the need for urgent cardiac catheterization was associated with an in-hospital mortality rate of 7% (vs. 3% in the group not requiring urgent angiography, p = 0.36); mean left ventricular ejection fraction was 50.5 ±11% (vs. 54.3 ±10.8%, p = 0.12) and regional infarct zone wall motion was -2.68 ±1.07 SD/chord (vs. -2.46 ±1.19 SD/chord; p = 0.44).. ...

We studied the evolution of body-surface potential map (BSPM) patterns in 32 patients following first acute inferior myocardial infarction. Initial BSPMs were obtained at a mean of 79 hours post-infarction; follow-up BSPMs, a mean of eight months post-infarction. Temporal area-of-difference maps, constructed by subtracting initial from follow-up group-mean BSPMs, revealed reciprocal changes over the superior and inferior torso for both Q-zone and ST-segment time-integral distributions. The temporal changes in Q-zone patterns were small but definite: over the inferior torso there was a relative gain in Q-zone values and, over the superior torso, a relative decrease. In contrast, there were marked spatial and quantitative changes of ST-segment distributions during the follow-up period. Over the superior torso, particularly anteriorly, there was a gain in ST-segment values; over the inferior torso, a decrease. With the small temporal changes in Q-zone time-integral distributions, individual Q-zone maps
p,,strong,Background,/strong,: Electrocardiographic diagnosis of a posterior wall myocardial infarction is difficult to accomplish by the standard 12-lead ECG.

The xanthine oxidase inhibitor allopurinol that is commonly used to treat gout, has been suggested to have pleiotropic effects that are likely to reduce the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI) in at risk individuals. The aim of this meta-analysis was to assess the efficacy of allopurinol treatment in reducing the incidence of MI. MEDLINE, Scopus, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library databases were searched for randomised controlled trials examining the efficacy of allopurinol in reducing the incidence of MI. The quality of study methodology was assessed by two independent reviewers using the Cochrane Collaborations tool for assessing risk of bias. This meta-analysis was conducted using a fixed-effects model, and heterogeneity was assessed with the I2 index. One thousand one hundred twenty-three citations were screened and only six studies satisfied the inclusion criterion. Published between 1988 and 1995, all studies examined the cardioprotective efficacy of allopurinol in the setting of coronary

T-wave polarity in V1 to V3 was examined in 70 patients with acute inferior wall myocardial infarctions (IWMI) as an indicator of significant disease in the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD). Fifty-three percent (37/70) had precordial T-wave inversions, and of these 38 percent (14/37) had angiographically significant LAD disease. Conversely, 47 percent (33/70) had upright T waves in V1 to V3, and of these, 52 percent (17/33) had significant LAD disease. Likewise, 41 percent of the patients with ST segment depression in V1 to V3 had significant LAD disease, while 50 percent of those with isoelectric ST segments were similarly affected ...
So what would I do?? I think there is some question on the initial ECG as to whether the ST elevation is definitely new (though I would highly suspect that it is). I would get serial ECGs for a longer time, get an immediate formal echo, and ultimately I believe that these would be convincing of acute (probably reperfused) STEMI. The positive initial trop would help, but this would be positive in a nonSTEMI also. Once convinced that the STE is new, I would activate the cath lab because acute anterior STEMI, even if reperfused, is extremely unstable and dangerous. ...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the value of a giant negative T wave (, or = 1.0 mV) in precordial leads of 12-lead electrocardiograms in the acute phase of Q wave myocardial infarction as a predictor of myocardial salvage. METHODS: Coronary angiographic and electrocardiographic findings, left ventricular ejection fraction in the chronic stage, and levels of cardiac enzymes were compared in patients with myocardial infarction with (group GNT, n = 31) and without (group N, n = 20) a giant negative T wave. GNT patients were divided into two subgroups according to the presence (GNT:R[+], n = 10) or absence (GNT: R[-], n = 21) of R wave recovery with an amplitude , or = 0.1 mV in at least one lead that had shown Q waves. RESULTS: The maximum level of creatine kinase and the total creatine kinase were lower in group GNT compared with group N (P , 0.05). The left ventricular ejection fraction was higher in group GNT than in group N (P , 0.05). The maximum creatine kinase and total creatine kinase were lower ...

The effect of sublingual nitroglycerin (NTG) on myocardial ischemic injury was evaluated in eleven patients with acute anterior myocardial infarction. Precordial 35-lead ST-segment maps were obtained in each patient immediately before and 3-10 minutes after 0.4 mg sublingual NTG. The following measurements were made from each ST map: N-ST (number of leads showing ST elevation greater than 1mm), sigmaST (total ST elevation in all leads), ST (average ST-segment elevation in those leads with less than 1mm elevation). Following 0.4 mg sublingual NTG evidence of myocardial ischemic injury as assessed by ST-segment mapping decreased in association with reduction of heart rate X systolic blood pressure product (10.80 X 10(3) to 9.49 X 10(3), P less than 0.001). Group mean values diminished significantly for N-ST (18.1 to 14.4, P less than 0.001), sigma ST (37.9 to 30.1 P less than 0.005) and ST (1.7 to 1.4, P less than 0.001). Evaluation performed by the technique of precordial ST-segment mapping ...

A 72-year-old female was admitted to the CCU with a recent onset of progressive breathlessness for bedside pericardial drainage for chronic pericardial effusion. After an uncomplicated drainage procedure, initially a serous straw coloured fluid was aspired with subsequent hemorrhagic aspiration with haemoglobin value similar to the peripheral blood. The patient showed initially transient improvement followed by rapid deterioration into severe shock and death. Signs of infero-posterior myocardial infarction (MI) were seen on the ECG. Before death, further interventions were refused by her and her family but a permission was given for autopsy. At autopsy, right ventricular rupture was seen with a 0.6 cm tear with a large amount of 800 cc bloody fluid with clots. The result of histopathologic study of the tear was resembling three-days old MI. The drain was found to be properly localized in the pericardial space, was not blocked and caused no harm to the myocardium. Furthermore, histopathologic examination
Microcirculatory injury is a determinant of LV function (3,15) and prognosis following acute MI (4,12). Whereas emergency PCI represents 1 of the first opportunities to evaluate and treat an acute MI patient, the optimal method for evaluating the microcirculation in this setting is uncertain (16).. The key findings in our study are as follows. First, in a broad range of STEMI patients undergoing emergency PCI, an invasive measure of microvascular function, the IMR, was linked with the pathological nature of MI, because IMR was higher in patients with MVO than in those without MVO, as revealed by ceCMR. Second, IMR independently predicted the severity of MI as revealed by infarct volume and LV function 2 days and 3 months after MI. Third, IMR, but not coronary wedge pressure or fractional collateral supply, independently predicted infarct size.. To date, IMR has been subject to pre-clinical and clinical validation, and these studies have demonstrated that IMR measurement is largely independent of ...
Laser Raman spectroscopy has been employed to investigate the effects of cyclosporine-A on the order and dynamics of DPPC (Dipalmytoyl Phosphatidyl Choline) midel membrane system. It is shown that the addition of small amount of cyclosporine-A to a DPPC dispersion disturb the system and changes the order/disorder parameter of the model membrane.
Images were reconstructed with a slice thickness of 0.75 mm each 0.5 mm, with a 5122 matrix and individually adapted field-of-view (FOV = 130 to 150 mm), using a dual-energy soft-tissue kernel (D30f), and displayed to assess the myocardium in short-axis views (Figs. 2A and 2B). Dual-energy iodine map and morphological delayed enhancement CT images were merged (Syngo DualEnergy, Siemens) to clearly demonstrate transmural inferior wall infarction with a high signal differential from infarcted to normal myocardium (Figs. 2C and 2D). A separate subendocardial infarct is also detected in the basal-lateral wall (Fig. 2C, arrowhead). The distribution and extent of infarction show striking similarity to the cardiac magnetic resonance images acquired 1 day later (Figs. 2E and 2F).. These images document the first use, to our knowledge, of dual-energy CT delayed enhancement myocardial viability imaging. Dual-energy CT harnesses the intrinsic variations in attenuation when iodine is exposed to beams of ...

The Anderson Wilkins (AW) electrocardiographic acuteness score has been shown to complement the historical timing in estimating the time interval from acute thrombotic coronary occlusion in patients presenting with chest pain and evolving myocardial infarction. The purposes of this study were to (1) compare the distributions of the previously developed AW acuteness score in a training population with either anterior or inferior AMI and (2) propose modifications to the formula to achieve distributions similar to the observed distributions of historical times from onset of pain. Methods Two hundred three and 177 patients were included as training and testing population, respectively. All patients had an anterior or an inferior AMI and were without confounding factors on the electrocardiogram. Results The training population had similar ...

This is named for obvious reasons. The J point is elevated and, along with the T wave, and it looks like a tombstone. In an anterior MI that shows "tombstoning," there is frequently 4 to 6 millimeter of ST segment elevation. Do not confuse the ST segment elevation with the T wave. Look specifically where the ST segment is - waaaaay up from the baseline. Recall that the J point is where we need to measure the elevation from baseline, and the baseline is always the TP segment (between the T wave and the P wave).. ...

In describing the pseudo-sci-fi dystopian anti-Heimat film I Love You, I Kill You (1971) aka Ich liebe dich, ich töte dich directed by unfortunately forgotten German New Cinema auteur Uwe Brandner (Blinker, 50/50 aka Halbe-Halbe), Austrian-born Jewish-American cineaste Amos Vogel wrote in his magnum opus Film as a Subversive Art (1974), "Through stylized acting, mysterious silences, disrupted sentences and frozen action, an atmosphere of alienation and stagnation permeates what the director ironically calls "a picture-book story of our Vaterland -- a vicious satire of the sentimental German "Heimat" films of the past." Personally, I think Vogel is at least half-wrong and merely spurred by his hatred of Teutons and the fact he was forced to flee Austria as a teenager due to Uncle Adolfs Anschluß in 1938, as I Love You, I Kill You is less a satire than a conspicuously culturally pessimistic depiction of the Fatherlands deluge as a result of the Second World War as directed by a filmmaker who, ...
Angiographic classification of the Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) study group (1,2) was a milestone in prognostic stratification after myocardial infarction (MI). However, subsequent studies suggested that TIMI classification may not fully reflect the adequacy of myocardial reperfusion after coronary recanalization (3). A significant proportion of patients, in fact, show a mismatch between epicardial flow and myocardial perfusion, known as "no reflow" phenomenon, which may be responsible for poor recovery of left ventricular (LV) function at follow-up. Microembolization of plaque debris, microvascular constriction, local inflammation, interstitial edema, and diffuse, irreversible myocardial damage may produce no-reflow at the tissue level despite preserved epicardial flow. Therefore, a new noninvasive method of detecting nutrient flow beyond the epicardial vessel is desirable (4).. Intracoronary Doppler ultrasound measurement of resting flow velocity has been recently proposed in ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of concurrent nitroglycerin administration on the thrombolytic efficacy of recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (rTPA) in patients with acute anterior myocardial infarction (AMI). Sixty patients (53 men, 7 women; mean age 54 +/- 7 years) with AMI entered the study. Thirty-three patients were randomized to receive rTPA alone (100 mg in 3 hours) (group A) and 27 to receive rTPA plus nitroglycerin (100 micrograms/min) (group B). Time from the onset of chest pain and delivery of rTPA was similar in the two groups of patients. Patients in group A had signs of reperfusion more often than the patients in group B (25 of 33 or 75.7% vs 15 of 27 or 55.5%, p less than 0.05). Time to reperfusion was also shorter in group A than in group B (19.6 +/- 9.4 minutes vs 37.8 +/- 5.9 minutes, p less than 0.05). Group B had a greater incidence of in-hospital adverse events (9 of 27 vs 5 of 33, p less than 0.05) and a higher incidence of coronary artery ...
Parts of the vulva, especially the clitoris, are erogenous zones.[14][15][16] While the vagina is not especially sensitive as a whole, its lower third (the area close to the entrance) has concentrations of the nerve endings that can provide pleasurable sensations during sexual activity when stimulated; this is also called the anterior wall of the vagina or the outer one-third of the vagina, and it contains the majority of the vaginal nerve endings, making it more sensitive to touch than the inner two-thirds of the vaginal barrel.[15][16][17][18]. Within the anterior wall of the vagina, there is a patch of ribbed rough tissue which has a texture that is sometimes described as similar to the palate (the roof of a mouth) or a raspberry, and may feel spongy when a woman is sexually aroused. This is the urethral sponge, which may also be the location of the G-spot - a structure described as an area of the vagina that some women report is an erogenous zone which, when stimulated, can lead to sexual ...

Things have changed through the years. Clinical skills in this area have deteriorated, in part because AVB complicating AMI is much less common in todays reperfusion era than it once was. The question of what to do with AVB after AMI seldom comes up anymore. Before the reperfusion era it was routine. The guiding principle back then was that, at least in acute anterior MI, when the block was subjunctional, that is true type II block, permanent pacing was indicated no matter how transient the block. (Caveat: the atypical situation of block arising in the common bundle of His is a nuanced topic, beyond the scope of this post ...

Methods and Results-The Minneapolis Heart Institutes Level 1 Regional ST-Segment-Elevation Myocardial Infarction program is designed to facilitate emergent transfer for PCI in patients with ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction from 31 rural and community hospitals. To determine the effect of emergent transfer, questionnaires were given to 152 patients and their families who survived to hospital discharge with a 65.8% response rate (mean age, 63.9 years; 29% women). Ninety-five percent of patients felt the reasons and process of transfer were well explained, and 97% felt transfer for care was necessary. Despite this, 15% of patients would have preferred to stay in their local hospital. The majority of the families felt the transfer process (88%) and family members condition (94%) were well explained. Although 99% felt it was necessary for their family member to be transferred for specialized care, 11% of families still would have preferred that their family members remain at the local ...

Background The TASTE trial did not demonstrate clinical benefit of thrombus aspiration (TA). High-risk patients might benefit from TA. Methods The TASTE trial was a multicenter, randomized, controlled, open-label trial obtaining end points from national registries. Patients (n = 7,244) with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were randomly assigned 1: 1 to TA and PCI or to PCI alone. We assessed the 1-year clinical effect of TA in a subgroup with potentially large anterior STEMI: mid or proximal left anterior descending coronary artery infarct lesion, thrombolysis in myocardial infarction 0 to 2 flow, and symptom onset to PCI time = 5 hours. In this substudy, patient eligibility criteria corresponded to that of the INFUSE-AMI study. Results In total, 1,826 patients fulfilled inclusion criteria. All-cause mortality at 1 year of patients randomized to TA did not differ from those randomized to PCI only (hazard ratio [HR] 1.05, 95% ...
In 700 patients with acute myocardial infarction admitted to the intensive coronary care unit of our hospital, the incidence and significance of left anterior hemiblock and left axis deviation has been studied in the acute phase of disease. In 102 (14.6%) of the 700 patients, isolated left axis deviation (mean QRS axis-45 degrees) was found and 69 of them (9.9%) met the criteria of left anterior hemiblock. Of the 69 patients with left anterior hemiblock, 61 had acute anterior myocardial infarction, 5 had inferior infarction, and 3 had subendocardial infarction. The anterior hemiblock was transient in 5 patients, but persisted in 64. All patients with and without isolated left anterior hemiblock and left axis deviation were compared statistically with reference to mortality rate and the incidence of arrythmias; no significant difference was noted. However, in patients over the age of 65 and also in those with hypertension, the incidence of left axis deviation was significantly higher (P less than ...
