A prospective study of acute myocardial infarction was carried out in 1239 patients in order to assess both the prognostic significance of diabetes mellitus and the clinical characteristics associated with age and gender. Diabetes mellitus (DM) was found in 386 cases, often associated with old age, female gender, and more prevalent history of angina, heart(More)
Age and female gender have been associated with poor prognosis in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Data currently available about the prognostic significance of gender in AMI might well have led to inappropriate/incomplete conclusions. A multicenter, prospective study on 1239 patients with AMI was conducted. Clinical characteristics, complications during(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES In patients with acute myocardial infarction, a number of variables in the initial ECG are useful prognostic indicators. The presence of ST-segment elevation, however, usually indicates the need for reperfusion therapy. The aims of this study were to investigate sex differences in the ECGs of patients with ST-elevation myocardial(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether there is a linear association of age and aspirin, betablockers, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and statins; the extent to which elderly patients receive these treatments; and whether age is independently associated with these treatments. DESIGN A prospective cohort study. SETTING Coronary Unit of two hospitals(More)
To determine whether ventricular short-term enlargement following acute myocardial infarction is related to increased left filling pressures and whether early treatment with captopril alters this process we studied 68 patients with a first acute myocardial infarction. Forty patients with a pulmonary capillary pressure equal or above 17 mmHg were randomized(More)
Having read carefully Cerdán-Santacruz et al. article (1), we agree with their conclusions: screening and early detection programs have showed their cost-effectiveness properties, and have obtained a lower incidence rate, earlier diagnosis, and a higher survival rate. In fact, the recommendation of using colonoscopy for colorectal screening in adults is a(More)
