The pathophysiology of cigarette smoking and cardiovascular disease: an update.
Cigarette smoking (CS) continues to be a major health hazard, and it contributes significantly to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Cigarette smoking impacts all phases of atherosclerosis fromExpand

Angiographic progression of coronary artery disease and the development of myocardial infarction.
There are few data on angiographic coronary artery anatomy in patients whose coronary artery disease progresses to myocardial infarction. In this retrospective analysis, progression of coronaryExpand

Angioscopic evaluation of coronary-artery thrombi in acute coronary syndromes.
BACKGROUND Disruption of an atherosclerotic plaque in a coronary artery followed by the formation of a thrombus is believed to be the cause of both unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction.Expand

Coronary angiographic morphology in myocardial infarction: a link between the pathogenesis of unstable angina and myocardial infarction.
It has previously been shown that analysis of coronary morphology can separate unstable from stable angina. An eccentric stenosis with a narrow neck or irregular borders, or both, is very common inExpand

Insights into the pathogenesis of acute ischemic syndromes.
OVER THE LAST few years clinical/pathologic observations and experimental investigation have led us to a better understanding of the pathogenetic factors leading to the acute coronary syndromes:Expand

In-hospital and late results of coronary stents versus conventional balloon angioplasty in acute myocardial infarction (GRAMI trial). Gianturco-Roubin in Acute Myocardial Infarction.
One hundred four patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction < 24 hours after onset were randomized to 2 groups: group I (n = 52) was treated with balloon angioplasty followed electivelyExpand

A risk score to predict in-hospital mortality for percutaneous coronary interventions.
OBJECTIVES Our purpose was to develop a risk score to predict in-hospital mortality for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using a statewide population-based PCI registry. BACKGROUND RiskExpand

Frequency of elevated troponin I and diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction.
This study evaluated the incidence and type of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in a consecutive population with increased troponin I (TnI). AMI has recently been redefined and subclassified.Expand

Angiographie morphology and the pathogenesis of unstable angina pectoris
In 110 patients with either stable or unstable angina, the morphology of coronary artery lesions was qualitatively assessed at angiography. Each obstruction reducing the luminal diameter of theExpand

Angiographic evolution of coronary artery morphology in unstable angina.
As previously reported in acute presentations of unstable angina, an identifiable characteristic coronary artery lesion has been found in about 70% of cases at coronary arteriography. This takes theExpand
