Taek Kyu Park; Jeong Hoon Yang; Seung-Hyuk Choi; Young Bin Song; Joo-Yong Hahn; Jin-Ho Choi; Kiick Sung; Young Tak Lee; Hyeon-Cheol Gwon; Sang Hoon Lee // Yonsei Medical Journal;Jun2014, Vol. 55 Issue 4, p920
Purpose: Limited data are available on the role of percutaneous cardiopulmonary support (PCPS) for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients with cardiogenic shock. We investigated the clinical outcomes and predictors of in-hospital mortality after PCPS in patients with AMI...
- 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...

- Patient-centered Processes of Care and Long-term Outcomes of Myocardial Infarction*. Fremont, Allen M.; Cleary, Paul D.; Lee Hargraves, J.; Rowe, Rachel M.; Jacobson, Nancy B.; Ayanian, John Z. // JGIM: Journal of General Internal Medicine;Dec2001, Vol. 16 Issue 12, p800
OBJECTIVE: To examine whether patients' experiences with nontechnical aspects of care such as patient education and discharge planning are associated with long-term outcomes. DESIGN: Observational cohort study. SETTING: Twenty-three New Hampshire hospitals during 1996 and 1997. PARTICIPANTS:...
- Impact of continuous intracardiac ST-segment monitoring on mid-term outcomes of ICD-implanted patients with coronary artery disease. Early results of a prospective comparison with conventional ICD outcomes. Forleo, Giovanni B.; Tesauro, Manfredi; Panattoni, Germana; Della Rocca, Domenico G.; Papavasileiou, Lida P; Sergi, Domenico; Molfetta, Arianna Di; Santini, Luca; Romeo, Francesco // Heart;Mar2012, Vol. 98 Issue 5, p402
Background Although myocardial ischaemia monitored by some implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) might improve patient care, the clinical usefulness of this technology has not yet been validated Objective To investigate the potential impact of ICDbased ischaemia monitoring on clinical...
- Prognostic predictors and outcomes in patients with abnormal myocardial perfusion imaging and angiographically insignificant coronary artery disease Alqaisi, Fadi; AlBadarin, Firas; Jaffery, Zehra; Tzogias, Leonidas; Dawod, Muath; Jacobsen, Gordon; Ananthasubramaniam, Karthik // Journal of Nuclear Cardiology;Nov2008, Vol. 15 Issue 6, p754
Background: Abnormal stress myocardial perfusion imaging studies (SMPI) with angiographically insignificant coronary artery disease (ICAD) have often been labeled â€œfalse positiveâ€ scans. We evaluated the prognostic predictors and outcomes in an unselected patient population having...
- Relationship Between Spontaneous and latrogenic Hypoglycemia and Mortality in Patients Hospitalized With Acute Myocardial Infarction. Kosiborod, Mikhail; Inzucchi, Silvio E.; Goyal, Abhinav; Krumholz, Harlan M.; Masoudi, Frederick A.; Lan Xiao; Spertus, John A. // JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association;4/15/2009, Vol. 301 Issue 15, p1556
The article reports on the results of research which was conducted in an effort to determine whether the mortality risk associated with hypoglycemic events is similar in patients who develop hypoglycemia spontaneously and those who develop it as a result of insulin therapy. Researchers used a...
