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)
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)
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)
UNLABELLED The aim of investigation: 1) to determine the diagnostic value of QRS score and LV echocardiography in assessment of the size of myocardial infarction in acute stage, 2) to establish the impact of infarct related artery recanalization on myocardial infarction size. METHODS AND MATERIAL In order to investigate whether infarct size could be(More)
UNLABELLED The comparative value of different factors of reperfusion technique and strategy in restoring of myocardial function is underestimated. The aim of this study is to assess the value of reperfusion strategy for restoring of myocardial function in follow-up period. MATERIAL AND METHODS From 1999 to 2001, 4260 patients with acute coronary syndromes(More)
There is a Lithuanian proverb saying: “nine times measure, 10th time cut away.” With great delight, I have read the “AHA/ACCF/HRS recommendations for the standardization and interpretation of the electrocardiogram: Part VI: acute ischemia/infarction,” prepared by Wagner et al and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology in 2009. They(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)
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)
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)
