AIM To describe temporal profiles of plasma matrix metalloproteinases (MMP-2 and MMP-9), and their relationship with echocardiographic (Echo) parameters of left ventricular (LV) function and remodelling, after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in man. METHODS AND RESULTS Plasma MMP-2 and MMP-9 were assayed at intervals (0-12, 12-24, 24-48, 48-72, 72-96, and > 96 h) in 91 patients with AMI (ST-elevation/non-ST-elevation 77/24; 73% male; 40% anterior site) and on a single occasion in 172 age… CONTINUE READING
