Consecutive electrocardiographic (ECG) analysis is very useful in acute coronary ischemia, but it is known that ECG patterns can be misleading in subjects with left ventricular hypertrophy, mainly during the repolarization phase. An automated system was developed to collect, store, and follow-up all heterogeneous data concerning a cohort of 1,898 subjects(More)
CONTEXT Elevated cardiac troponin levels have been reported to identify unstable angina patients at high risk. OBJECTIVE To examine the relation of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) and cardiac troponin T (cTnT) levels to findings of coronary angiography in these patients. METHODS Samples for troponin estimation were taken every 4 hours throughout the first 48(More)
BACKGROUND New biochemical markers have been recently proposed as potential aids in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction. Assessment of these markers in real time by near-patient testing would allow more rapid decisions regarding critical therapeutic interventions. HYPOTHESIS The diagnostic performance of two qualitative, whole blood assays for(More)
Many aspects of coronary artery disease in young people are not completely understood. Our study concerns a series of 100 patients < 45 years with acute coronary artery disease. Sixty patients survived and 40 died suddenly. All subjects have been divided into four groups: Group I includes 20 deceased patients with anatomic features of acute myocardial(More)
Sudden cardiac death is not well known and provoking factors are yet mainly unknown. To clarify whether sudden cardiac death has a circadian rhythm in young people we have studied 40 patients < 45 years who died in Brescia between 1984 and 1993 of sudden cardiac death showing at autopsy features of coronary artery disease (CAD) and 12 patients aged < 30(More)
