Third universal definition of myocardial infarction
TLDR
This article aims to provide a summary of this document along with its implications for nursing practice in different clinical situations. Expand
Universal definition of myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Information on myocardial infarction attack rates can provide useful data regarding the burden of coronary artery disease within and across populations, especially if standardized data are collected in a manner that demonstrates the distinction between incident and recurrent events. Expand
Early revascularization in acute myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock. SHOCK Investigators. Should We Emergently Revascularize Occluded Coronaries for Cardiogenic Shock.
TLDR
In patients with cardiogenic shock, emergency revascularization did not significantly reduce overall mortality at 30 days, but after six months there was a significant survival benefit, and earlyRevascularization should be strongly considered for patients with acute myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenesis. Expand
Fourth Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction (2018).
TLDR
The Executive Group on behalf of the Joint European Society of Cardiology (ESC), American College of cardiology (ACC), American Heart Association (AHA), World Heart Federation (WHF) Task Force for the Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction concludes that the current definition of myocardial infarction is inadequate. Expand
Left ventricular end-systolic volume as the major determinant of survival after recovery from myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Volume, ejection fractions, and severity of coronary arterial occlusions and stenoses in 605 male patients under 60 years of age at 1 to 2 months after a first or recurrent myocardial infarction showed that end-systolic volume had greater predictive value for survival than end-diastolic volume or ejection fraction. Expand
Valsartan, captopril, or both in myocardial infarction complicated by heart failure, left ventricular dysfunction, or both.
TLDR
Valsartan is as effective as captopril in patients who are at high risk for cardiovascular events after myocardial infarction and the combination of the two on mortality in this population of patients. Expand
Relation between renal dysfunction and cardiovascular outcomes after myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Even mild renal disease, as assessed by the estimated GFR, should be considered a major risk factor for cardiovascular complications after a myocardial infarction. Expand
