The Effects of Facilitated Percutaeous Coronary Intervention in Acute Myocardial Infarction
The purpose of this study to investigate whether the administration of high-dose tirofiban before primary PCI could reduce myocardial infarct size, using analysis of contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging.

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.
In patients with acute myocardial infarction who are managed in the prehospital setting, and who will treated with primary angioplasty, we evaluate the benefit of an early administration o...
The elective("standard of care") treatment of ST - elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) currently consists of primary angioplasty with stent implantation during administration o...
The aim of this randomized trial is to compare the efficacy of high dose tirofiban administered as either an intracoronary bolus alone or as an intravenous bolus followed by a maintenance...
The purpose of this study is to determine which from the four combinations tirofiban+sirolimus eluting stent (SES), tirofiban+bare metal stent (BMS), abciximab+SES, abciximab+BMS is the po...
The conceptual hypothesis of this study is that, in patients with acute myocardial infarction and ST-segment elevation, the strategy of performing coronary angioplasty of the culprit arter...
Three-year follow-up of the MULTIcentre evaluation of Single high-dose Bolus TiRofiban versus Abciximab with Sirolimus-eluting STEnt or Bare-Metal Stent in Acute Myocardial Infarction StudY (MULTISTRATEGY).

PURPOSE: Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors are favourable in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients, and the additional value of early pre-hospital high bolus dose tirofiban has recently b...
Essential thrombocythemia (ET) can cause systemic vascular thrombosis but rarely cause obstruction of coronary arteries or acute myocardial infarction (MI). Treatment of acute MI in patients with ET m...
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...
