Interrupting myocardial reperfusion with intermittent episodes of ischemia (i.e., postconditioning) during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) has been suggested to protect myocardium in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Nevertheless, trials provide inconsistent results and any advantage in long-term outcomes remains elusive.(More)
Objective To evaluate a 30-day and long-term outcome of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) treated with intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) counterpulsation and to identify predictors of a 30-day and long-term all-cause mortality. Methods Retrospective cohort study of 437 consecutive AMI patients treated with IABP between January 1990 and June(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of inotropic agents on parameters of tissue perfusion in patients with cardiogenic shock. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty patients with cardiogenic shock were included. Patients received dobutamine, enoximone, or norepinephrine. We performed hemodynamic measurements at baseline and after titration of the inotropic agent until(More)
Critically ill patients often have focuses of infection that are difficult to detect. When conventional imaging techniques fail to demonstrate the focus of infection, FDG-PET-CT ([ 18 F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography) can be of value [1]. In this case, we present a 62-year-old male patient with a history of(More)
A 53-year old man underwent mitral valve replacement (St. Jude mechanical prosthe-sis) for endocarditis, and coronary artery bypass grafting (left internal mammarian artery to left anterior descending artery, and great saphenous vein to obtuse marginal artery). Three weeks after this operation, the patient was readmitted with severe chest pain, which was(More)
