    Background and Objectives: Some recent data indicate that risk of death after acute coronary syndrome is under genetic control. Previously, we found that the C4B*Q0 genotype (low copy number of the C4B gene that encodes the fourth component of complement) is strongly associated with morbidity...

    Background: In patients with acute myocardial infarction, estimation of infarct size by cumulative lactate dehydrogenase release at 72 h (LDHQ72) is a simple and widely used method. Our objective was to study the value of estimating infarct size, by the cumulative release of LDH over 72, 60, 48...

    Background: Improved myocardial blush grade is associated with better MACE outcomes in acute myocardial infarction patients but there are no data on myocardial blush grade (MBG) assessment in unstable angina (UA) patients treated with coronary intervention. We sought to evaluate the use of...

    Left ventricular (LV) false aneurysm is an uncommon complication of myocardial infarction. Conventional treatment mandates surgical repair but is associated with significant perioperative risk. We present a case of successful percutaneous closure of a LV false aneurysm in a patient at high...

    Abstract: Reperfusion has the potential to introduce additional injury that is not evident at the end of ischaemia per se, i.e. reperfusion injury. Reperfusion injury is expressed as endothelial and microvascular dysfunction, impaired blood flow, metabolic dysfunction, cellular necrosis, and...

    Abstract: Our understanding of the end-effectors involved in preconditioning protection is still very limited. This is partially due to an incomplete knowledge of the mechanisms responsible for acute sarcolemmal rupture and cell death during the first minutes of reperfusion, including the...
