• STEMI
  • Nearly half a century ago, the first experience with reperfusion therapy for STEMI using fibrinolytic agents was reported, but most studies were small and had no strict electrocardiography criteria. (ahajournals.org)
  • 2 In the same time period, Rentrop performed the first percutaneous coronary recanalisation procedure in STEMI using a guide wire to dislodge occlusive coronary thrombus, which resulted in coronary reperfusion. (ahajournals.org)
  • This publication is not only an update of the more recently published randomized trials of primary angioplasty versus fibrinolysis but also the first meta-analysis of observational rather than randomized studies on reperfusion therapy for STEMI for both the early and long-term outcomes.

  • If an MI is presented with ECG evidence of an ST elevation known as STEMI, or if a bundle branch block is similarly presented, then reperfusion therapy is necessary. (wikipedia.org)
  • cardiac
  • FX06 was administered intravenously to patients during reperfusion treatment, and the effect on heart muscle preservation was then assessed using the most advanced imaging technology: cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR). (innovations-report.com)
  • lead
  • Although no perfect thrombolytic agent exists, ideally it would lead to rapid reperfusion, have a high sustained patency rate, be specific for recent thrombi, be easily and rapidly administered, create a low risk for intracerebral bleeding and systemic bleeding, have no antigenicity, adverse hemodynamic effects, or clinically significant drug interactions, and be cost effective. (wikipedia.org)
  • approach
  • The major advantages of an interventional approach to reperfusion are 2-fold: a more complete recanalisation and a lower risk of bleeding and reinfarction. (ahajournals.org)
  • hours
  • 7. The method of claim 4 , wherein the PS-binding agent is administered to the patient up to about 6 hours prior to reperfusion. (google.com)
