OBJECTIVES The investigators undertook a systematic, comprehensive analysis of the therapeutic response and clinical outcomes of reperfusion therapy for acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in 5,470 patients from the Assessment of the Safety and Efficacy of a New Thrombolytic Regimen (ASSENT)-3 trial. BACKGROUND Prompt effective(More)
Achieving recommended cholesterol and triglyceride targets for the prevention of cardiovascular events is difficult and frequently requires the use of >1 lipid-lowering medication. This study evaluated the tolerability and effectiveness of combination regimens in high-risk dyslipidemic patients resistant to monotherapy. A retrospective chart review of all(More)
OBJECTIVE: Physicians may use several validated risk indices to estimate perioperative cardiac risk, but there is little evidence for interventions to reduce this risk. We were interested in evaluating how general internists assess, define, communicate, and attempt to modify perioperative cardiac risk. DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey of all 312 general(More)
Copper amine oxidases (EC exhibit stereochemical heterogeneity in their reaction specificities. Enzymes isolated from different sources have previously been shown to catalyze the deamination of tyramine and dopamine with abstraction of the pro-R hydrogen at C-1, the pro-S hydrogen, and net nonstereo-specific protein abstraction. In this study we(More)
BACKGROUND Post-operative complications are a significant source of morbidity and mortality for patients undergoing surgery. However, there is little research in the emerging field of perioperative medicine beyond cardiac risk stratification. We sought to determine the research priorities for perioperative medicine using a cross sectional survey of Canadian(More)
