- ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHIC CHANGES NOT RELATED TO CORONARY THROMBUS FORMATION IN NON-ST ELEVATED ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME. BEKLER, Adem; ALTUN, Burak; BARUTÇU, Ahmet; TEMİZ, Ahmet; GAZİ, Emine; ERBAĞ, Gökhan; GÜNEŞ, Fahri // Anatolian Journal of Clinical Investigation;2014, Vol. 8 Issue 1, p1
The clinical significance of T wave invertion (TWI) and ST depression (STD) in patients with non ST elevated acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) has been previously evaluated. Our aim was to evaluate the association of electrocardiographic (ECG) changes with coronary thrombus (CT) formation in...
- The sooner the better. // Pharmaceutical Representative;Aug2007, Vol. 37 Issue 8, p11
The article reports on the result of the study conducted by researchers from Japan which suggests that statins may prevent further heart events and reduce long-term mortality in patients suffering from heart attack. Under the study, researchers put more than 1,400 patients on statin therapy...

A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 64 patients with acute myocardial infarction, assisted in "Dr. JoaquÃn Castillo Duany" Teaching Clinical Surgical Hospital in Santiago de Cuba was carried out during 2008, in order to determine the variability during cardiovascular events, with...
- Owners of a Lonely Heart. Chatterjee, Camille // Psychology Today;Jul/Aug99, Vol. 32 Issue 4, p22
Reveals that heart attack survivors have a hard enough time dealing with the aftermath of their illness, according to a research. Impact of the trauma of having a heart attack; Comments from Nancy Frasure-Smith of Montreal Heart Institute in Quebec.
- MI patients are more likely to survive in the U.S.. Ferraro, Julia // RN;Apr97, Vol. 60 Issue 4, p18
Reports that patients who develop cardiogenic shock after myocardial infarction (MI) receive more aggressive treatment in the United States. Mortality rate of MI patients treated in the United States and those treated in other countries.
- Upregulation of angiotensin II type 2 receptor and limitation of myocardial stunning by angiotensin II type 1 receptor blockers during reperfused myocardial infarction in the rat. Jugdutt, Bodh I.; Menon, Vijayan // Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology & Therapeutics;Sep2003, Vol. 8 Issue 3, p217
Background:We have previously shown that angiotensin II type 1 receptor blockers induce cardioprotection and upregulate angiotensin II type 2 receptor during in vivo postischemic-reperfusion in dogs. Whether angiotensin II type 1 receptor blockers upregulate angiotensin II type 2...
- Pre-Procedural Atorvastatin Mobilizes Endothelial Progenitor Cells: Clues to the Salutary Effects of Statins on Healing of Stented Human Arteries. Hibbert, Benjamin; Xiaoli Ma; Pourdjabbar, Ali; Simard, Trevor; Rayner, Katey; Jiangfeng Sun; Yong-Xiang Chen; Filion, Lionel; O'Brien, Edward R. // PLoS ONE;2011, Vol. 6 Issue 1, p1
Objectives: Recent clinical trials suggest an LDL-independent superiority of intensive statin therapy in reducing target vessel revascularization and peri-procedural myocardial infarctions in patients who undergo percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). While animal studies demonstrate that...
- Intensive lipid lowering in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and previous myocardial infarction: an explorative analysis from the incremental decrease in endpoints through aggressive lipid lowering (IDEAL) trial. Semb, Anne G.; Holme, Ingar; Kvien, Tore K.; Pedersen, Terje R. // Rheumatology;Feb2011, Vol. 50 Issue 2, p324
Objectives. Documentation on secondary prevention with statins in RA patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) is limited, despite the increased risk of CHD in RA. Our objective was to describe the effect of statin treatment on lipid levels and cardiovascular disease (CVD) events in patients...
