The purpose of this study is to validate a practical risk score to predict the mechanical complication of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
STEMI patients chewed 300 mg aspirin and 600 mg clopidogrel in the emergency department, followed by oral 100 mg aspirin and 75mg clopidogrel daily for at least 12 months. STEMI patients received low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), β-blockers, and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) according to the STEMI guideline, unless there were contraindications to these drugs. Peripheral blood samples were collected from patients within 2 hours of admission for blood routines and blood biochemistry examinations. White blood cell counts and level of hemoglobin were assessed with automated cell counters via standard techniques. The investigators followed up patients in validation group for three month to observe the cardiac rupture events and other adverse cardiac events .

The aim of the study is to assess the negative predictive value of the T amplitude variance as a method for risk stratification for patients with an increased risk for SCD.
Ascending aorta aneurysmal disease is common and can be complicated by dissection or rupture. There is substantial variation in individual aneurysm progression: established risk factors fo...
Different plaque morphology may have an important effect on the prognosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), as recent studies show that patients with plaque rupture have a significantl...
The overall rationale is to reduce the risk of sudden cardiac death in individuals with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The novel approach of this study is to correlate Positron Emissio...
This research study can help understand how cardiac changes may occur with radiation therapy to the heart based off measurements obtained through biomarkers and cardiac imaging. Researche...
Sudden cardiac death (SCD) results from a complex interplay of abnormalities in autonomic function, myocardial substrate and vulnerability. We studied whether a combination of noninvasive risk stratif...
Clinical and imaging surveillance practices following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for intact abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) vary considerably and compliance with recommended lifelong surveill...
Normal high sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) assays rule out acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with great accuracy, but additional non-invasive testing is frequently ordered. This observational s...
We evaluated the role of increased cardiac troponin T (cTnT), vascular, and cardiac diseases in predicting 5 and 10-year all-cause mortality after kidney transplantation.
Ventral hernias are a common pathology encountered by surgeons. Multiple risk stratification tools have been developed in attempts to predict a patient's postoperative risk for complication. The aim o...
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE. It also includes cardiac conditioning and SECONDARY PREVENTION in patients with elevated cardiovascular risk profile.
Disease-related laceration or tearing of tissues of the heart, including the free-wall MYOCARDIUM; HEART SEPTUM; PAPILLARY MUSCLES; CHORDAE TENDINEAE; and any of the HEART VALVES. Pathological rupture usually results from myocardial infarction (HEART RUPTURE, POST-INFARCTION).
Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Rupture of the SPLEEN due to trauma or disease.
The tearing or bursting of the wall along any portion of the AORTA, such as thoracic or abdominal. It may result from the rupture of an aneurysm or it may be due to TRAUMA.
Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical re...
