Myocardial infarction (MI) secondary to coronary artery fistula and the subsequent occlusion of the distal right coronary artery (RCA) after blunt chest trauma is a rare entity. Here, we describe a case of coronary artery fistula and occlusion with an inferior MI that occurred following blunt...
- Takotsubo cardiomyopathy after severe emotional stress: a case report and a brief literature review. Skorup, Lea; Gobić, David; Tomulić, Vjekoslav; Lulić, Davorka; Zaninović Jurjević, Teodora; Zaputović, Luka; Ružić, Alen // Cardiologia Croatica;May/Jun2014, Vol. 9 Issue 5/6, p174
The goal: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is recognized as an important differential diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. It is characterized by a transient systolic dysfunction of apical, mid or basal segments of the left ventricle with an absence of obstructive coronary artery disease. Despite a...

- Changing the diagnostic criteria for myocardial infarction in patients with a suspected heart attack affects the measurement of 30 day mortality but not long term survival. Packham, C.; Gray, D.; Weston, C.; Large, A.; Silcocks, P.; Hampton, J. // Heart;Oct2002, Vol. 88 Issue 4, p337
Objectives: To explore the effects of alternative methods of defining myocardial infarction on the numbers and survival patterns of patients identified as having sustained a confirmed myocardial infarct. Design: An inclusive historical cohort of patients admitted with a suspected heart attack....
- Coronary Angioplasty for Acute Myocardial Infarction. Topol, Eric J. // Annals of Internal Medicine;12/15/88, Vol. 109 Issue 12, p970

- Research Briefs - Estimates of MI risk. // GP: General Practitioner;3/25/2011, p10
The article focuses on the research report according to which a sensitive troponin test can be used for detecting an coronary syndrome Myocardial infarction (MI) risk in the patients in the Great Britain.
- Myoglobinemia is an Early and Quantitative Index of Acute Myocardial Infarction. Willerson, James T. // Angiology;May1978, Vol. 29 Issue 5, p386
Systemic arterial compliance was measured in 22 patients with permanent essential hypertension and compared with 11 sex- and age-matched normal subjects. Determinations were made from analysis of the monoexponential blood pressure-time curve during diastole, according to a simple visco-elastic...
