Serum levels of T4, T3 rT3 and resin T3 uptake were followed for 5 days in 40 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) allocated to early treatment either with alprenolol or placebo. There was a significant fall in T3 (P<0.05) and an increase in rT3 (P<0.05) without any significant difference between the alprenolol — (n=19) and placebo — (n=21)(More)
In 40 patients with ischaemic heart disease the serum levels of magnesium, parathyroid hormone (PTH), phosphate, calcium, and ionized calcium remained unchanged and within normal limits following treatment for 12 months with alprenolol (n=20) or placebo (n=20). No changes occurred during a 2 week withdrawal period. The clinical implication is that the(More)
The effect of long-term treatment with alprenolol on left ventricular function was investigated in a controlled double-blind study of 15 patients with ischaemic heart disease (alprenolol 6, placebo 9), by measurement of systolic time intervals (STI). Significant prolongation of QS2I was observed in patients treated with alprenolol (p<0.05), while changes in(More)
AIMS Due to the limitations of 12-lead ECG, occlusions of the left circumflex artery (LCX) are more likely to present as non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS) compared with other coronary arteries. We aimed to study mortality in patients with LCX lesions and to assess the importance of coronary artery dominance on triage of these patients. (More)
OBJECTIVES To study the effect of red blood cell (RBC) storage duration on long-term mortality in patients undergoing cardiac intervention. BACKGROUND RBCs undergo numerous structural and functional changes during storage. Observational studies have assessed the association between RBC storage duration and patient outcomes with conflicting results. (More)
