ABSTRACT
A cone-in-cone rotational viscometer is used to produce thrombosis in vitro at 110 sec.-1. Blood viscosity and coagulation times (the rate of thrombus formation in vitro) are compared in men with recent myocardial infarction and in healthy volunteers of similar age range. No significant difference is observed. No correlation is found between coagulation times at 110 sec. -1 and hematocrit, blood viscosity, platelet counts, tests of platelet function and serum cholesterol.

    An hypothesis is presented which contends that localized temporary coronary arterial spasm, plus coronary sclerosis, is the usual cause of myocardial infarction. Coronary thrombosis, if it occurs at all, is believed to be secondary to stagnation of the blood in the coronary artery and is rarely,...

    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...

Patients with the concave...
