OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate T-wave normalization during the 6-month follow-up in the patients who underwent early or late mechanical recanalization of the infarct-related artery with and without stent implantation. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 248 consecutive patients were divided into the following groups: early angioplasty (≤24(More)
BACKGROUND There is little known about whether characteristics and outcomes of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) have changed over the years in non-PCI capable hospitals in real-life. Our aim was to assess them between 2007 and 2014. METHODS It was a retrospective cohort study. Characteristics and in-hospital mortality (standardized in cases(More)
OBJECTIVE To show differences in the changes of electrocardiographic and echocardiographic data after early and late mechanical recanalization of infarct related artery with and without stent implantation and to assess the value of QRS score in the follow-up period. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 248 consecutive patients were divided into these groups:(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficiency of myocardial reperfusion after thrombolytic and spontaneous recanalization of infarct related artery (IRA) by the serial 12 lead ECG data and its impact on subsequent myocardial recovery. MATERIAL AND METHODS We examined 25 patients with a first Q wave myocardial infarction at hospital and after 1 and 3 years from(More)
A constant ST-elevation was more often described in precordial leads. We presented it in leads II, III, AVF in 16 consecutive patients seeking to establish a link between it and clinical, laboratory, echocardiography, exercise test, and multi-slice computed tomography angiography data. Main complaint of these obese middle-age men was angina pectoris(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Post-PCI TIMI flow grade 3 in infarct-related artery not always is associated with follow-up improvement in myocardial perfusion and function. We compared the improvement in myocardial perfusion and function in cases of rapid and slow electrocardiographic (ECG) stage dynamics between patients with TIMI-3 flow after primary(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in developed countries. Main modifiable cardiovascular risk factors are smoking, hypertension and dyslipidemia. We sought to introduce the patient education about these risk factors into a daily routine of the Cardiology Unit of the hospital. METHODS In November 2003, 56 patients filled(More)
Myocardial perfusion in infarct-related artery (IRA) distribution improves progressively until a few months after successful reperfusion therapy. We assessed the rate of electrocardiographic (ECG) stage dynamics to predict perfusion improvement after mechanical, thrombolytic, or spontaneous recanalization of IRA. Thirteen patients were divided into group A(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of the study was to determine the prognostic value of simultaneous evaluation of angiographic (TIMI flow) and ECG (ST segment resolution) changes on hospital results in primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty patients. METHODS AND PATIENTS The primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty was performed in 250(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Reperfusion therapy results in better left ventricle (LV) function in cases of successful myocardial reperfusion; however, insufficient reperfusion or reocclusion of the infarct-related artery is associated with LV dysfunction. This study was proposed to determine whether the rate of ECG stage dynamics, after mechanical, thrombolytic,(More)
