Pilot Study on Shear-induced Platelet Aggregation in Acute Coronary Syndromes

2014-08-27 03:45:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether shear-induced platelet aggregation is able to discriminate first acute coronary syndrome (ACS) from recurrent ACS

Description

Predictive factors of recurrence of ACS are not well determined. Platelet aggregation and leucocyte activation seem to be involved in the pathogenesis. The aim of our study is to compare SIPA, platelet activation and platelet-leucocytes aggregates on the onset of the ACS and 3 months later in 2 groups of patients scheduled for a first episode of ACS or recurrent ACS .

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Precordial pain at rest, which may precede a MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.

ANGINA PECTORIS or angina-like chest pain with a normal coronary arteriogram and positive EXERCISE TEST. The cause of the syndrome is unknown. While its recognition is of clinical importance, its prognosis is excellent. (Braunwald, Heart Disease, 4th ed, p1346; Jablonski Dictionary of Syndromes & Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed). It is different from METABOLIC SYNDROME X, a syndrome characterized by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA, that has increased risk for cardiovascular disease.

A vasodilator used in angina of effort or ischemic heart disease.

2-(2,2-Dicyclohexylethyl)piperidine. Coronary vasodilator used especially for angina of effort. It may cause neuropathy and hepatitis.
