Comprehensive Oral Intervention in Patients With AMI

2019-07-15 10:05:50 | BioPortfolio


The investigators performed a randomized controlled trial with investigator-masked design enrolling subjects with acute myocardial infarction.

The purpose of this study is to find a treatment strategy to reduce the risk of recurrence of myocardial infarction through oral hygiene improvement.


Subjects were divided into a treatment group and a control group. Both sides receive basic periodontal examinations, but the treatment group receives active dental procedure such as scaling and root planing. Both groups also receive post-myocardial infarction management.

As part of a pilot study, this study used the primary outcome measure for changes in surrogate markers rather than clinical outcomes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after 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.

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).

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).
