The article presents information about several papers related to myocardial infarction, a coronary artery disease. The article titled "Relation of interhospital delay and mortality in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction transferred for primary coronary angioplasty,"...
- Early Revascularization in Acute Myocardial Infarction Complicated by Cardiogenic Shock. Hochman, Judith S.; Sleeper, Lynn A.; Webb, John G.; Sanborn, Timothy A.; White, Harvey D.; Talley, J. David; Buller, Christopher E.; Jacobs, Alice K.; Slater, James N.; Col, Jacques; McKinlay, Sonja M.; Picard, Michael H.; Menegus, Mark A.; Boland, Jean; Dzavik, Vladimir; Thompson, Christopher R.; Wong, S. Chiu; Steingart, Richard; Forman, Robert; Aylward, Philip E. // New England Journal of Medicine;08/26/99, Vol. 341 Issue 9, p625
Background: The leading cause of death in patients hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction is cardiogenic shock. We conducted a randomized trial to evaluate early revascularization in patients with cardiogenic shock. Methods: Patients with shock due to left ventricular failure complicating...
- PRIMARY ANGIOPLASTY IN PATIENTS >75 YEARS WITH EXTENSIVE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION: EXPERIENCE OF A REFERENCE CENTRE. Colombo, P.; Salvadè, P.; Corroda, E.; Piccalà, G.; Bossi, I.; Pedrotti, P.; Bigi, R.; Klugmann, S. // Heart;May2004 Supplement 3, Vol. 90, pA7
The article presents a study of primary angioplasty in patients of more than 75 years, with extensive myocardial infarction. Primary angioplasty (PrPTCA) is rationally supported as a feasible and effective treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), particularly if complicated by cardiogenic...
- Current concepts in the management of cardiogenic shock. Trohman, Richard G. // Research Reports in Clinical Cardiology;2014, Vol. 5, p145
Cardiogenic shock most commonly results from myocardial infarction and is associated with mortality rates ranging from 40% to 50%. Early revascularization improves mortality. Mechanical complications of myocardial infarction require surgical intervention. Medical, device and mechanical therapies...
- Fatal cardiogenic shock after electroconvulsive therapy: A case report. Shrigiriwar, Manish; Bardale, Rajesh // Medico-Legal Update;Jan-Jun2011, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p62
Modified electroconvulsive therapy is relatively safe procedure and on most of the instances, morbidity and mortality is related to cardiovascular complications. We report a case of fatal cardiogenic shock after electroconvulsive therapy.
- Postconditioning with levosimendan reduces the infarct size involving the PI3K pathway and KATP-channel activation but is independent of PDE-III inhibition. Hönisch, Antje; Theuring, Norman; Ebner, Bernd; Wagner, Claudia; Strasser, Ruth H.; Weinbrenner, Christof // Basic Research in Cardiology;Mar2010, Vol. 105 Issue 2, p155
Reperfusion injury is strongly involved in the loss of functional heart tissue in patients after acute myocardial infarction. Various signal transduction pathways to reduce infarct size during reperfusion have been characterized. However, so far in the clinical setting no standard therapies are...
- WHY ARE CLINICAL INDICATORS FOR DEATHS FROM ACUTE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION SO INACCURATE? // Heart;May2001 Supplement 1, Vol. 85, pP5
The article reports that 30 day mortality following acute myocardial infarction (AMI) at Wirral hospital was one of the highest in England according to recent published figures. In 1997/98 the report concerned age less than 50 years, whereas for 1998/99 the age range was 35-74. The diagnosis of...
- MANAGEMENT OF CARDIOGENIC SHOCK COMPLICATING ACUTE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION. Menon, Venu; Hochman, Judith S. // Heart;Nov2002, Vol. 88 Issue 5, p531
Discusses the incidence of cardiogenic shock complicating acute myocardial infarction. Prediction and prevention of shock; Clinical recognition; Etiology; Management of cardiogenic shock; Management of mechanical complications.
- Abstracts of the 25th congress of Esctaic, Timisoara, Romania, October 23-25 2014. // Journal of Clinical Monitoring & Computing;Oct2014, Vol. 28 Issue 5, p441
The article presents abstracts on medical topics which include cardiogenic shock monitoring, the reasons for using pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) in operating rooms, and the respiratory intraoperative care of significantly obese patients.
