Identification of viable myocardium by echocardiography during dobutamine infusion in patients with myocardial infarction after thrombolytic therapy: comparison with positron emission tomography.
Histopathological examination of concept of left hemiblock.
A histological study of the left bundle-branch system in 20 hearts from patients without conduction defects and in Io heartsfrom patients with left anteriorfascicular block finds that the left branch was observed to give off a third radiation in II out of the 20 control hearts.
Predicting the extent and location of coronary artery disease in acute myocardial infarction by echocardiography during dobutamine infusion.
Patients with myocardial infarction and normal coronary arteriogram.
Eighteen patients who survived an acute myocardial infarction were found to have a normal coronary arteriogram and subsequent normal coronary angiogram are mainly found in young female patients, and infarctions is often nontransmural.
Relation between contractile reserve and positron emission tomographic patterns of perfusion and glucose utilization in chronic ischemic left ventricular dysfunction: implications for identification…
ST-segment elevation during dobutamine stress testing predicts functional recovery after acute myocardial infarction.

It is suggested that H p 2-2 patients have more severe myocardial infarctions than Hp 1-1 and Hp 2-1 patients, and no difference in the distribution of haptoglobin phenotype was found between patients who had a myocardIAL infarction and healthy subjects, indicating that Hp2-2 does not predispose to the occurrence of infarition.
Incidence, clinical significance and prognosis of ventricular fibrillation in the early phase of myocardial infarction.
Of 1265 patients admitted to the CCU with the diagnosis of acute MI, 96 (7.6%) developed ventricular fibrillation within 72 hours following admission; this mortality figure was significantly higher than the mortality among patients who did not experience VF, suggesting that primary VF may carry a guarded prognosis.

Patients with inferior AMI who developed AV block had a poor hospital outcome but long-term prognosis was similar in hospital survivors who had AV block and in those without this complication.
[The PROSPER Study (PROspective study of pravastatin in the elderly at risk)].
A controlled, randomised study involving 2,804 men and 3,000 women aged 70-82, with a history of, or risk factors for cardiovascular disease, which revealed no overall increase of cancer risk.
