OBJECTIVE To determine whether creatinine clearance at the time of hospital admission is an independent predictor of hospital mortality and adverse outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). DESIGN A prospective multicentre observational study, GRACE (global registry of acute coronary events), of patients with the full spectrum of ACS. (More)
OBJECTIVES The aims of the Safety and Efficacy of Subcutaneous Enoxaparin Versus Intravenous Unfractionated Heparin and Tirofiban Versus Placebo in the Treatment of Acute ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction Patients Ineligible for Reperfusion (TETAMI) study were to demonstrate that enoxaparin was superior to unfractionated heparin (UFH) and that(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment with lytics or primary percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) reduces the mortality rate of patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) presenting within 12 hours. Patients presenting >12 hours are generally considered to be ineligible for reperfusion therapy, and there are currently no specific treatment recommendations(More)
The long-term use of aspirin (ASA) reduces the risk of subsequent acute coronary syndromes in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). It is less clear whether ASA therapy benefits patients who develop an acute coronary syndrome despite its use. Baseline characteristics, type of acute coronary syndrome, and in-hospital events were compared on the basis(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this article was to investigate whether prior aspirin use in patients with acute coronary syndromes affects clinical outcome. The Efficacy Safety Subcutaneous Enoxaparin in Non-Q-Wave Coronary Events Study (ESSENCE) and Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) 11B trials have shown superiority of enoxaparin over unfractionated(More)
Background: The standard of care for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is prompt coronary reperfusion with thrombolysis or percutaneous coronary intervention. Women have higher mortality rates than men following STEMI and fewer women are considered eligible for reperfusion therapy. We analyzed the impact of gender, and other factors, on the(More)
BACKGROUND To further elucidate the mechanisms involved in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, we compared the effects on left ventricular volumes of early (< 48 hours) versus late (45 days) administration of a fixed low dose of enalapril (10 mg) in patients with AMI. We also analyzed the changes(More)
OBJECTIVES We analyzed the effect of the pharmacologic combination of 2 indirect antithrombin drugs--enoxaparin (low-molecular-weight heparin) and unfractionated heparin--versus enoxaparin alone on the recurrence of ischemia. BACKGROUND Blocking some key factors of the coagulation cascade supports the concept that an antithrombin effect is needed during(More)
