International comparisons are suggesting that mortality inequalities may have changed in the last years, although not always into the same direction. Only a few studies examined myocardial infarction (MI). In our study, long-term developments of MI and all-cause mortality were considered by analysing social gradients by income.

We have reported that mast cell chymase, an angiotensin II-generating enzyme, is important in cardiovascular tissues. Recently, we developed a new chymase-specific inhibitory RNA aptamer, HA28, and we...
Air pollution triggered diseases have become a leading health problem worldwide. The main adverse effects of air pollutants on human health are related to the cardiovascular system and particularly sh...
To assess the potential protective effect of bariatric surgery on mortality after myocardial infarction (MI) or cerebrovascular accident (CVA).
Delay in treatment and/or failure to provide reperfusion in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) impacts on morbidity and mortality. This occurs more often outside metropolitan areas yet...
We sought to identify clinical, electrocardiographic (ECG), and angiographic characteristics that are predictive of 3-year mortality after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients ...
The purpose of this observational study is to assess predictors of in-hospital mortality in patients with acute myocardial infarction admitted to Belgian hospitals.
ST-elevation myocardial infarction is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. ST-elevation myocardial infarction damages the regional myocardium that undergoes ischemia and nec...
Type 2 myocardial infarction has been reported in the Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction for more than 10 years and most studies resulted in a high mortality rate. However, litt...
The aim of this study is to compare the radial and femoral access for percutaneous interventions in the acute phase of the ST elevation acute myocardial infarction in terms of efficacy and...
This is a multicenter retrospective observational study with STEMI (ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction) patients who have been treated in the northern Galician Hospitals. The study tries t...
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).
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.
Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
