Relation Between Aldosterone and Cardiac Remodeling After Myocardial Infarction
to determine if the aldosteronemy proves to be predictive of a cardiac remodeling in the 6 months following a STEMI (myocardial infarction with know-shift of the segment ST) revascularized in acute phase, independently of the conventional predictive parameters (size of the infarction measured in IRM, age, HTA…).
the relation between aldosteronemy and cardiovascular events could be mainly explained by the early and long-term noxious effects of the aldosterone on cardiac remodeling
After myocardial infarction, the evolution towards cardiac failure is generally related to a progressive aggravation of the cardiac dysfunction, noxious remodeling. This one depends above all on wide on the after-effects on infarction, but also on other parameters such as the age and arterial hypertension. The aldosteronemy measured as of the first hours of the infarction is associated with a bad long-term forecast. The aldosterone interacts at the same time on the mechanisms of cicatrisation and cicatricial fibrosis and on the conditions of load (volemy, vascular function). Medications anti-aldosterone can antagonise these noxious effects but they are not without adverse effects and one cannot identify the patients likely yet to really profit from it: arterial hypertension could be a prerequisite (study EPHESUS), like the attack of a critical threshold of size of the infarction (principal remodeling factor)

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.
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.
Heart Rupture, Post-infarction
Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.
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.
