Medicine Variables in Syndrome X Patients

Abstract

Although the thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) flow grade is a widely used qualitative measurement in angiographic trials, it is limited by its subjective and categorical nature. In contrast, the TIMI frame count (TFC) is a reproducible, objective and quantitative index of coronary flow1,2. The TFC is derived by counting the number of cineangiographic frames that elapse between the leading edge of the contrast injection entering the proximal portion of a coronary artery and arriving at a predetermined distal landmark1. Recent reports showed that the TFC is correlated with coronary flow reserve3, endothelial function4, stenosis severity in the infarct artery after infarction, infarct zone regional wall motion5, and adverse clinical outcomes6–8. In addition, RELATIONSHIPS OF THE THROMBOLYSIS IN MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION FRAME COUNT WITH CLINICAL, HEMODYNAMIC AND MEDICINE VARIABLES IN SYNDROME X PATIENTS
