AF patients had a poorer prognosis with a higher incidence of malignant arrhythmias, reinfarction, ischaemic mitral regurgitation, heart failure, cardiogenic shock and in-hospital mortality than non-AF patients.
Women with small increases in troponin concentration, only detectable using the sex-specific threshold, had rates of death or reinfarction that were comparable to or worse than women with much larger infarcts identified using the clinical assay.
Risk of death or reinfarction associated with the use of selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors and nonselective nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs after acute myocardial infarction.
We analyzed mortality and readmissions due to rest angina pectoris or reinfarction (new cardiac events) during the study period and examined left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF).
But there were no differences in the rates of mortality and reinfarction during hospitalisation.
Another example is clopidogrel and PPIs, which cause the risk of reinfarction.
The primary end point was a composite of cardiac death, stroke, reinfarction, ventricular arrhythmia, or paroxysmal atrial fibrillation within 1 month.
A sub-analysis of the DANAMI study (Danish Acute Myocardial Infarction study) included 1008 patients who had undergone thrombolysis because of an acute myocardial infarction and had residual ischaemia (silent or symptomatic), showed that invasive treatment reduced the risk of non-fatal reinfarction, as well as hospital admissions for unstable angina.
