MINOCA vs TpNOCA

MINOCA vs TpNOCA TpNOCA: Troponin-positive nonobstructive coronary arteries Apparent myocardial infarction in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease MINOCA: Myocardial Infarction With Nonobstructive Coronary Arteries Term reserved for only those who have evidence of ischemia related myocardial necrosis MINOCA included only coronary disorders like coronary dissection, plaque disruption, coronary spasm, microvascular dysfunction, coronary thrombus and embolism (recanalized). TpNOCA includes in addition to MINOCA, myocardial disorders like myocarditis, takotsubo cardiomyopathy and other cardiomyopathies as well as non cardiac disorders like pulmonary embolism and renal impairment.

Authors: Bhullar SK, Shah AK, Dhalla NS Abstract Effective therapy of hypertension represents a key strategy for reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease and its associated mortality. The significance of voltage dependent L-type Ca²⁺ channels to Ca²⁺ influx, and of their regulatory mechanisms in the development of heart disease, is well established. A wide variety of L-type Ca²⁺ channel inhibitors and Ca²⁺ antagonists have been found to be beneficial not only in the treatment of hypertension, but also in myocardial infarction and heart failure. Over the past two decades, another cla...

In this study, approximately 10% of Transient STEMI had no culprit found:Early or late intervention in patients with transient ST ‐segment elevation acute coronary syndrome: Subgroup analysis of the ELISA‐3 trialOne must use all available data, including the ECG, to determine what happened.Final Diagnosis?If the troponin remained under the 99% reference, then it would be unstable angina.  If it rose above that level before falling, it would be acute myocardial injury due to ischemia, which is, by definition, acute MI.  If that is a result of plaque rupture, then it is a type I MI.  The clinical presentat...

We physicians are obsessed with classifying, sorting, and differentiating in a quest for never-ending precision. We gather all manner of “facts” from our patients. Sights, smells, reactions to pushing or pulling. We divine sounds with antiquated stethoscopes or peer underneath the skin with ultrasound. We subject them to tests of blood, urine, and fluids from any place our needles can reach.     All of this is to arrive at an exact diagnosis that is often frustrated by the secondary nature of the data. Our disappointment has driven us mad, but the promise of exactness from biomarkers leaves us gidd...
