OBJECTIVE Mortality in diabetic patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) is high. The significance of the pretreatment coronary status in type 2 diabetic patients with acute MI, as well as the effect of mechanical revascularization using percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), has not been established. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS All(More)
Tachycardia induced alternation of the T wave (TWA) has been associated with arrhythmia morbidity in mixed patient populations. However, less is known concerning the general incidence of TWA and its usefulness in risk stratification early after acute myocardial infarction (MI). TWA was prospectively and systematically assessed in 140 consecutive patients 15(More)
UNLABELLED Prospective, systematic studies of the pathophysiology and prognosis of premenopausal women vs young men who suffer an acute myocardial infarction (MI) and are treated with direct angioplasty are scarce. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 782 consecutive and unselected patients who presented with an acute ST-elevation MI within 12 h of symptom(More)
OBJECTIVE The immediate hemodynamic effects of contrast agents are well documented. Less is known about their longer-lasting effects. We investigated the later effect of iopromide on the neurovascular coupling mechanism after the performance of cerebral or coronary angiography. Neurovascular coupling is a fine-tuned and reliable mechanism adapting cerebral(More)
