There are many underlying mechanisms for cocaine-associated myocardial infarction, and the culprit must be elucidated for appropriate therapeutic management. Optical coherence tomography provides unique insights when angiography alone has limited diagnostic value; it also aids in the decision between conservative management and revascularization strategy and guides coronary interventions.

Every year, more than 500,000 US Emergency Department visits are associated with cocaine use. People who use cocaine tend to have a lower incidence of true ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
The optimal anti-coagulation strategy for patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction treated with percutaneous coronary intervention is unclear in contemporary clinical practice of radial ac...
Little is known about the causality and pathological mechanism underlying the association of seasonal variation with myocardial injury in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEM...
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...
Electrocardiographic measures of ventricular repolarization dispersion and arrhythmic outcomes among ST elevation myocardial infarction patients with pre-infarction angina undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention.
Arrhythmias are considered one of the major causes of death in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), particularly in the early in-hospital phase. Pre-infarction angina (PIA) has been suggested t...
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...
This study evaluates differences in the extent of myocardial necrosis noted by cardiac MRI in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction randomized to receive cangrelor during their ...
We planned to evaluate the effects of liraglutide on left ventricular function in patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI).
The purpose of the IMPRESSION study is to determine whether intravenous administration of morphine prior to ticagrelor administration in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) ...
Of estimated 140,000 cases of acute myocardial infarction admitted to hospitals in Germany per year, approximately 50% present with Non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). The cur...
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).
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).
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.
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.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
