UNLABELLED The electrocardiogram (ECG) findings in acute coronary syndrome should always be interpreted in the context of the clinical findings and symptoms of the patient, when these data are available. It is important to acknowledge the dynamic nature of ECG changes in acute coronary syndrome. The ECG pattern changes over time and may be different if(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the effectiveness of in-hospital medical therapy versus coronary revascularisation added to medical therapy in patients who stabilised after an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). DESIGN Propensity score-matched cohort study from the database of the Tampere ACS registry. SETTING A single academic hospital in Finland. PARTICIPANTS 1149(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is the standard treatment for revascularisation in patients with left main coronary artery disease, but use of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for this indication is increasing. We aimed to compare PCI and CABG for treatment of left main coronary artery disease. METHODS In this prospective,(More)
In recent years, genome-wide association studies have identified 58 independent risk loci for coronary artery disease (CAD) on the autosome. However, due to the sex-specific data structure of the X chromosome, it has been excluded from most of these analyses. While females have 2 copies of chromosome X, males have only one. Also, one of the female X(More)
Myocardial infarction (MI) is divided into either ST elevation MI (STEMI) or non-ST elevation MI (NSTEMI), differing in a number of clinical characteristics. We sought to identify genetic variants conferring risk to NSTEMI or STEMI by conducting a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of MI stratified into NSTEMI and STEMI in a consecutive sample of 1,579(More)
