Norwegian Study on District Treatment of ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction
In the district areas of Norway patients with acute myocardial infarction with ST-elevation, are treated with thrombolysis. An increasing part of them receives thrombolysis before arrival to the local hospital.Usually these patients have been sent to an invasive center if thrombolysis fails or the patient gets ischemic symptoms during the stay.
This study will compare this strategy against immediate transportation to an invasive center after the patient has received thrombolysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
Acute Coronary Syndrome
An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
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.
Nitric Oxide Donors
A diverse group of agents, with unique chemical structures and biochemical requirements, which generate NITRIC OXIDE. These compounds have been used in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and the management of acute myocardial infarction, acute and chronic congestive heart failure, and surgical control of blood pressure. (Adv Pharmacol 1995;34:361-81)
Heart Rupture, Post-infarction
Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
The aim of the study was therefore to evaluate whether myocardial deformation imaging performed by SENC allows for quantification of regional left ventricular function and is related to tr...
The purpose of this study is to test whether early pre-reperfusion metoprolol administration in patients suffering and acute myocardial infarction might reduce the size of myocardial necro...
Background: Acute balloon angioplasty is beneficial in patients with acute myocardial infarction. However, presently this treatment is not offered to patients with symptom duration above 1...
The purpose of this observational study is to assess predictors of in-hospital mortality in patients with acute myocardial infarction admitted to Belgian hospitals.
The incidence of stent restenosis in the setting of primary angioplasty is particularly high, reaching a rate of 27% In the last years the introduction of drug-eluting stents has drast...
Changing axis deviation has been rarely reported also during atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. Changing axis deviation has been also rarely reported during acute myocardial infarction associated...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a risk factor for long-term adverse outcomes, including acute myocardial infarction and death. However, the relationship between severity of AKI and in-hospital outcomes i...
There are controversies about the use of drug-eluting stent (DES) in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Recent trials of DES in patients with AMI have shown the relative safety of DES. H...
