Association of mean platelet volume and pre-and post interventional flow with infarct-related artery in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
Additionally, considering infarct-related artery, left anterior descending (LAD) artery was more common in group A (LVEF <50%), whereas right coronary artery (RCA) was more common in group B (p=0.048) (Table 1); when using logistic regression, we found that patients with LAD as an infarct-related artery were 4 times more likely to develop LVEF <50% (OR 4.074; 95% CI 1.11-15.01; p=0.035) (Table 2).
Since early diagnosis was correct, the patient received an adequate therapeutic algorithm, in other words mechanical reperfusion and stent placement in the infarct-related artery. Timely revascularization of blood vessel contributed significantly to the patient's clinical stabilization as well as to later gradual mitral valve recovery.
Overall, the LVEF was 57.1%, the final TIMI flow < 3 incidence in the infarct-related artery was 12.2%, and the 30-day recurrent MI and 30-day mortality rates were 4.1% and 4.9%, respectively.
Usefulness of the admission electrocardiogram for identifying the infarct-related artery in inferior wall acute myocardial infarction.
Functional role of microvascular integrity in patients with infarct-related artery patency after acute myocardial infarction.
"Only 44% of patients are treated with optimal medical therapy prior to PCI, and approximately 50% of patients with an occluded infarct-related artery after an MI undergo PCI of that artery," Dr.
The study is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of infarct-related artery infusion of AMR-001, an autologous bone marrow derived cell therapy enriched for CD34+ cells.
It also showed patients with large thrombus burden, who were treated with RT, had a lower infarct-related artery stent thrombosis compared to those
(13,14) Finally, it has been reported that MPV at admission might also be valuable in the prediction of the infarct-related artery patency and in planning the need for adjunctive therapy to improve outcomes in patients with STEMI undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention.
CHICAGO -- Routine late coronary intervention to open a persistently occluded infarct-related artery in stable patients is no longer appropriate in light of the findings of the 2,166-patient Occluded Artery Trial, said Dr.
