Autonomic mechanisms may have an important role in the clinical presentation of acute coronary occlusion. This research was designed to evaluate the effect of preocclusion stenosis severity on the immediate autonomic heart rate (HR) responses to a subsequent acute occlusion of the coronary artery. HR and its variability in the time and frequency domains(More)
Early experience with repeat transcutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (TTCA) in 9 coronary patients is reviewed. The interval between the first and the repeat TTCA varied between 1 and 12 months averaging 4.9 +/- 4.7 months. Repeat dilatation of the anterior interventricular branch was performed in 7 patients, that of the right coronary artery, in(More)
The results of urgent coronarography and ventriculography in 95 patients with pre-infarction state and acute myocardial infarction are analyzed. It is established that from the beginning of the acute anginal attack till the end of coronarography 13 h 40 min (average) have elapsed. In 13 patients angiographically normal coronaries have been found, 2 of them(More)
The intracoronary administration of nitroglycerin and streptokinase was assigned to 95 patients with acute myocardial infarction. In 69 (79.3%) out of the 87 occluded coronary arteries the antegrade blood flow was restored. After the thrombolysis, aortocoronary shunting was performed in 26 patients and transcutaneous transluminal coronary angioplastic(More)
Transcutaneous transluminal coronary angioplastics was performed in 8 patients with acute myocardial infarction. In five patients dilatation of the coronary artery was carried out after intracoronary thrombolytic therapy and in the 3 others without the preliminary infusion of streptokinase. The method proved effective in 6 out of the 8 patients: the(More)
Transcutaneous transluminal coronary angioplastics (TTCA) was performed in 28 coronary heart disease patients (8 patients had stable and 5 others labile angina, 15 presented acute myocardial infarction, AMI). The patients with AMI received intracoronary thrombolytic treatment prior to TTCA. Successful dilatation was performed in one patient with narrowing(More)
