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.

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...
The purpose of this study is to determine cell therapy efficacy in patients with ST elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI)
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...
Recent clinical studies have shown that systemic therapeutic hypothermia improving the outcomes in patients with ST segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) received primary percutan...
The proposed study is a registry of patients treated with primary angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction. The aim of this registry is to define the outcomes of patients treated for a...
Potential benefits or risks of oxygen inhalation for patients with acute myocardial infarction are not fully understood.
In-hospital mortality of acute myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation remains high and is influenced by many factors, some of which are modifiable such as time to treatment initiation and mod...
Acute ischemic stroke and myocardial infarction are emergency clinical events that require prompt intervention. Concurrent occurrence of both events magnifies the complexity of the clinical management...
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Case-fatality rates for myocardial infarction (MI) in the United States have decreased over the past decades, in large part due to advan...
Current non-invasive diagnostics for acute myocardial infarction (MI) identify myocardial necrosis rather than the primary cause and therapeutic target-plaque disruption and resultant thrombosis. The ...
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.
A myocardial infarction that does not produce elevations in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. ST segment elevation of the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION 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.
