Classical and nonclassical risk factors contribute to the development of myocardial infarction (MI) in young patients. The aim of the present study was to find out whether insulin resistance and impaired fibrinolysis, with increased plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1), are present in young male post-MI patients, and their relation to additional markers of cardiovascular risk such as endothelial dysfunction (ED) and intima-media thickness (IMT). Forty-one male patients (on average 44 years… CONTINUE READING
