Anterior Wall Myocardial Infarction
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
The geometric and structural changes that the HEART VENTRICLES undergo, usually following MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION. It comprises expansion of the infarct and dilatation of the healthy ventricle segments. While most prevalent in the left ventricle, it can also occur in the right ventricle.
Inferior Wall Myocardial Infarction
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.
Infarction, Anterior Cerebral Artery
NECROSIS occurring in the ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY system, including branches such as Heubner's artery. These arteries supply blood to the medial and superior parts of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, Infarction in the anterior cerebral artery usually results in sensory and motor impairment in the lower body.
Heart Rupture, Post-infarction
Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
BACKGROUND: -Experimental data show that the right ventricle (RV) is more resistant to ischemia than the left ventricle. To date, limited data are available in humans because of the difficulty of disc...
Purpose: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is an indicator of platelet activation, which is a central process in the pathophysiology of coronary heart disease. Metabolic syndrome (MS) may lead to worsened le...
BACKGROUND: -Lead V1 directly faces the right ventricle and may exhibit ST elevation during an acute inferior myocardial infarction when the right ventricle is also involved. Leads V1 and V3 indirectl...
Introduction: There are only very few data on gender differences in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Aim: To compare the clinical data and prognosis of patients with ST-elevation myoc...
In patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), both myocardial blush grade (MBG) and coronary flow pattern obtained by transthoracic Doppler echocardiography (TTDE) have limitations in assessing...
In this study the investigators aim at comparing the effect on quality of life and the cost-effectiveness of a structuralised sick-leave program compared to usual care sick leave managemen...
The investigators applied G-CSF to patients 2 weeks after acute anterior MI and successful PCI to evaluate the efficacy and safety of G-CSF in improving myocardial function as cytokine whi...
This is a multicenter, open-label, controlled, single-blind, randomized study with up to 452 subjects enrolled in up to 40 US and European sites. Subjects who present with anterior ST-elev...
To determine whether or not HyperOxemic therapy rendered to patients (that meet the study inclusion criteria) with anterior acute myocardial infarction < 6 hours from symptom onset to repe...
Objectives Intracoronary transplantation of different cell populations have been used in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with promising results. The primary objective of the ASTAMI...
