Jie, S.U.N. Xuan, X.U. BiaoAbstract and KeywordsHypertension (HT) is the most common public-health challenge and shows a high incidence around the world. Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity among the elderly (age> 65 years) in the United States. Now, there is widespread acceptance of the causal link between HT and acute myocardial infarction (MI). This is the first data-mining study to id...

Authors: Chen J, Xu S, Zhou W, Wu L, Wang L, Li W Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of exendin-4 (Ex-4) on ventricular arrhythmias and calcium sparks-mediated calcium leak in a myocardial infarction-heart failure model.We studied the influence of exendin-4 on ventricular arrhythmogenesis in a rat myocardial infarction-heart failure model. In vivo arrhythmia studies (electrocardiogram [ECG] telemetry studies), ex vivo arrhythmia studies calcium sparks tests, and analysis of total and phosphorylated ryanodine receptor (RyR) 2 and CaMK-II were carried out in sham group, myocardial infarction...

We report the case of a 33-year-old woman with no history of coronary risk factors or chest pain who experienced intermittent chest pain at rest for several minutes from 2 PM. At 8 AM the next day, chest pain recurred and persisted for about 1 hour. She was transported to our hospital by ambulance, where electrocardiogram showed ST-elevation in the precordial leads, and blood tests showed elevation of cardiac markers. She was diagnosed with ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Because she was a young woman without any risk factors, coronary spastic angina was suspected. Coronary angiography without intracoronary nitrate adm...

In conclusion, the in-hospital mortality of nonagenarians with AMI was comparable to that of octogenarians with AMI. In-hospital outcomes in nonagenarians with AMI may be acceptable as long as acute medical management including PCI to the culprit of AMI is performed.

ConclusionThe final results of this study showed that there was no significant difference between the four study groups and arrhythmia status. Therefore, F-QRS was not introduced as an independent predictor of arrhythmia in acute myocardial infarction patients.
