RElevance of Biomarkers for Future Risk of Thromboembolic Events in UnSelected Post-myocardial Infarction Patients

2014-07-24 14:06:35 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study is an open, single center, observational study at the Cardiology Dept at Uppsala University Hospital. The number of patients included will be 410. The objectives are to:

Evaluate biomarkers and change of these related to myocardial infarction, during two years follow-up in an unselected patient population with a recent myocardial infarction.

Evaluate if an early change of biomarkers can be related to death, new myocardial infarction, and ischemic stroke in the same population after two and five years follow-up.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
