Randomized, Controlled Study on Short-Term Psychotherapy After Acute Myocardial Infarction

19:49 EDT 2nd September 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Psychosocial factors play an important role in the pathophysiology of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but it is not known if psychotherapy is beneficial after the contemporary treatment of AMI consisting of medical and interventional therapy.

The investigators have designed a randomized, controlled study to assess the effects of short-term psychotherapy (STP) on the clinical outcomes of patients who have undergone an emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) post-AMI.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

A type of automatic, not reentrant, ectopic ventricular rhythm with episodes lasting from a few seconds to a minute which usually occurs in patients with acute myocardial infarction or with DIGITALIS toxicity. The ventricular rate is faster than normal but slower than tachycardia, with an upper limit of 100 -120 beats per minute. Suppressive therapy is rarely necessary.

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.

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.
