This is a cross-sectional study of post myocardial infarction patients which is designed to determine the prevalence of left ventricular thrombi (blood clots) using non-contrast echocardiography and to compare this with the prevalence of left ventricular thrombi using contrast echocardiography. Secondary aims of this study are (1) to identify clinical and imaging correlates of left ventricular thrombi, and (2) to compare quantitative measurements of left ventricular chamber si...
In patients with acute myocardial infarction, treatment logistics are primarily defined based upon ST segment shift in the electrocardiogram. While patients with ST elevation (STEMI) are forwarded to immediate coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention, patients without ST elevation (NSTEMI) are initially medically treated and recommended coronary angiography within 48-72 hours. Early invasive treatment has been found cost-effective in intermediate and high-ri...
This study evaluates what effect sonothrombolysis may have on spontaneous reperfusion, microvascular obstruction, left ventricular function and infarct size in patients presenting with their first ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction.
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 necrosis, resulting in impairment of both systolic and diastolic functions of the heart. Left ventricular function and myocardial infarct size both serve as the main determinants Of patients' outcome after myocardial infarction. Timely management of ST-elevation myocardial infarction, using reper...
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 percutaneous coronary intervention and compares them to patients randomized to not receive cangrelor.
Study Objectives: To determine whether, in patients with large acute myocardial infarction undergoing primary or rescue angioplasty, the administration of subcutaneous Lenograstim [recombinant human Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor (rhu G-CSF), Myelostim 34, Italfarmaco] associated with Myocardial Contrast Echocardiography and the intravenous infusion of sulphur hexafluoride (Sonovue, Bracco) determines an improvement: - in regional and global contractile function, my...
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) patients and in non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients alters the plasma concentrations of ticagrelor and its active metabolite and whether it is associated with any negative impact on the antiplatelet effect of ticagrelor.
The primary purpose of this study is to correlate new cardiac imaging modalities (2D, 3D echocardiography, contrast echocardiography, strain analysis and cardiac MRI) to biochemical parameters as the L-arginine-nitric oxide pathway and inflammatory cascades to characterize the reperfusion injury following myocardial infarction and thus providing a basis for further diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
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 currently available evidence led to current guideline recommendations that a systematic approach of immediate angiography in NSTEMI patients stabilized with contemporary antiplatelet treatment is not mandatory. However, this immediate invasive approach is appealing because it allows treating the ...
The ADMIRAL (Platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibition with coronary stenting for acute myocardial infarction) study demonstrated that early administration of abciximab in patients with ST elevation acute myocardial infarction prior to PCI improves clinical outcomes but no specifically designed randomized study has addressed the issue of early upstream use of GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors in ST elevation acute myocardial infarction who are undergoing PCI, especially in the era of rout...
The investigators propose to perform a randomized clinical trial comparing prasugrel vs. ticagrelor in 60 patients with ST elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention. The principal objective of the study would be analyzing the difference in myocardial infarction size measured by cardiac magnetic resonance at 6 months
The aim of the study is to test the efficacy of low versus high volume hydration and two different solutions (sodium chloride versus sodium bicarbonate) in preventing contrast induced nephropathy (CIN) in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients undergoing primary PCI.
Despite progress in pre-hospital care, ambulance logistics, pharmacotherapy and PPCI techniques, ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) continues to confer a substantial burden of morbidity and mortality. Within the STEMI population, there is a spectrum of higher and lower risk patients. The aim of this registry is to collect prospectively and systematically clinical research data from STEMI patients. This registry is an open-end observational study to identify mas...
Over the last two decades, considerable progress has been made in the management of myocardial infarction, both in the acute phase and in monitoring beyond the hospital phase. However changing practices in the "real world" and their impact on prognosis in the medium and long term patients admitted to the intensive care unit for acute myocardial infarction are relatively little studied exhaustively. The study of clinical, biological and genetic characteristics of patients and t...
The objective of this study is to determine whether myocardial contrast echocardiography in patients with cardiomyopathy (HCM) can detect resting hypo-perfusion due to fibrosis or stress induced perfusion defects due to associated abnormalities in intramyocardial arteries and the microcirculation. A secondary aim will be to determine whether abnormalities in perfusion are associated with either severity of symptoms (chest pain and dyspnea), presence of arrhythmias, and regional...
The primary objective of this study is to investigate whether intracoronary bolus administration of abciximab is superior to intravenous bolus administration in improving myocardial perfusion in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention.
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), produced mainly in enteroendocrine cells, participates in energy homeostasis and glucose metabolism by regulating islet hormone secretion, gastrointestinal motility, and food intake, making GLP-1 agonist a treatment for diabetes and obesity. Pre-clinical and clinical studies have demonstrated that GLP-1 also has cardio-protection effects. GLP-1 agonists is able to improve markers of cardiac function, reduce myocardial infarct size and post-myoca...
The overall aim of this study is to determine whether non-invasive imaging with myocardial contrast echocardiography using can provide information on the presence and spatial extent of recent myocardial ischemia by non-invasive echocardiographic imaging.
The investigators scheduled to assess the value of intravenous injection of WJ-MSC in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
Eosinophils (EOS) in peripheral blood are significantly decreased in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and the reduced EOS indicates severe myocardial damage. Whether EOS is a good predictor for in-hospital major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) of patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction remains unknown. The aims of this study was to evaluate prognostic role of EOS for in-hospital MACEs in STEMI patients who have undergone primary percutaneous co...
Thirty patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction treated with primary PCI and aspiration of thrombus material from the infarct related coronary artery will be included. Both cellular and non cellular content of the thrombus will be examined with morphological and immunohistochemical methods and related to time from onset of symptoms to PCI, as well as to the degree of myocardial necrosis. Furthermore, mRNA expression of selected signal molecules will be performed. ...
