Increased Particulate Air Pollution and the Triggering of Myocardial Infarction
Background—Elevated concentrations of ambient particulate air pollution have been associated with increased hospital admissions for cardiovascular disease. Whether high concentrations of ambientExpand

From vulnerable plaque to vulnerable patient: a call for new definitions and risk assessment strategies: Part I.
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease results in >19 million deaths annually, and coronary heart disease accounts for the majority of this toll. Despite major advances in treatment of coronary heartExpand

Triggering Myocardial Infarction by Marijuana
Background—Marijuana use in the age group prone to coronary artery disease is higher than it was in the past. Smoking marijuana is known to have hemodynamic consequences, including a dose-dependentExpand

Circadian variation in the frequency of onset of acute myocardial infarction.
To determine whether the onset of myocardial infarction occurs randomly throughout the day, we analyzed the time of onset of pain in 2999 patients admitted with myocardial infarction. A markedExpand

In vivo 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography imaging provides a noninvasive measure of carotid plaque inflammation in patients.
OBJECTIVES Given the importance of inflammation in atherosclerosis, we sought to determine if atherosclerotic plaque inflammation could be measured noninvasively in humans using positron emissionExpand

Circadian variation and triggers of onset of acute cardiovascular disease.
Information obtained during the past decade suggests the need to reexamine the possibility that the onset of myocardial infarction and sudden cardiac death is frequently triggered by dailyExpand

Triggering of acute myocardial infarction by heavy physical exertion. Protection against triggering by regular exertion. Determinants of Myocardial Infarction Onset Study Investigators.
BACKGROUND Despite anecdotal evidence suggesting that heavy physical exertion can trigger the onset of acute myocardial infarction, there have been no controlled studies of the risk of myocardialExpand

Circadian variation in the frequency of sudden cardiac death.
To determine whether sudden cardiac death exhibits a circadian rhythm similar to that recently demonstrated for nonfatal myocardial infarction, we analyzed the time of day of sudden cardiac death asExpand

Circadian variation in the incidence of sudden cardiac death in the Framingham Heart Study population.
To determine if sudden cardiac death shows circadian variation, the time of day of sudden cardiac deaths in the Framingham Heart Study was analyzed. Analysis was based on mortality data collected inExpand
