We conducted a randomized feasibility pilot study comparing combined fibrinolysis with immediate rescue angioplasty vs. primary angioplasty with adjunctive abciximab in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Seventy patients with ST segment elevation AMI of </= 6 hr were randomized to either 50 mg of alteplase and abciximab (n = 34) or primary(More)
INTRODUCTION Several randomised controlled trials have demonstrated better outcomes with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) over fibrinolytic therapy in the treatment of patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and normal renal function. Whether this benefit extends to patients with impaired renal function is uncertain.(More)
AIM the purpose of this study was to investigate differences in long-term mortality following acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in patients from three major ethnicities of Asia. METHODS AND RESULTS We studied 15,151 patients hospitalized for AMI with a median follow-up of 7.3 years (maximum 12 years) in six publicly-funded hospitals in Singapore from(More)
The Killip classification of acute heart failure was developed decades ago to predict short-term mortality in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The aim of this study was to determine the long-term prognosis of acute heart failure graded according to the Killip classification in 15,235 unselected patients hospitalized for AMI from 2000 to(More)
Young patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) have a more favorable prognosis than older patients with MI. However, there are limited data comparing the prognosis of young patients with MI with young population controls. Comparison with an age-matched background population could unmask residual mortality risk in young patients with MI that would(More)
