As ACS patients are likely to be more heterogeneous and inflammatory cytokines are also upregulated during acute coronary events, especially AMI, the findings of the association between serum cytokines and the severity of CAD maybe influenced.
The results based on quartiles (Table 2) shows that for several of the outcomes (e.g., acute coronary event and major adverse cardiac event) HRs > 1 were found also in quartiles 2 and 3, whereas for stroke the increased risk was limited to the highest quartile.
The prospective study " Catastrophic health expenditure after acute coronary events in Asia" states that Indians and Chinese have to undergo maximum ' out of pocket' costs and suffer maximum catastrophic health spend when hospitalised after heart attack ( Acute Coronary Syndromes), or ACS, in Asia.
In the present study, we found decreased plasma adiponectin concentrations in the patients with diabetes which was further lower in patients with an acute coronary event indicating that it may be a predictor of macroangiopathy.
, aims to determine the predictive value of the "Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events" (GRACE), a clinical scale designed for the estimation of mortality risk or HF risk in patients with SCA, with the inclusion of CRP serum concentrations in the model.
For the purpose of National Acute Coronary Events (NACE) registry for capturing ACE in Indian hospitals, ACS will be defined as either unstable or intermediate coronary syndrome and/or acute myocardial infarction.
The notion that the elderly may not tolerate or respond to treatments after a heart attack or other acute coronary event is untrue, according to researchers at Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute.
ATLANTA -- Psychiatrists treating depression associated with an acute coronary event should look to severity of a depressive episode, recurrence of major depression, and the onset of depression prior to hospitalization as predictors of drug benefit.
The authors have suggested that with these findings cutoff values can be determined to diagnose acute coronary event, decide about interventional procedures and even to stop medication on reversal of levels of circulating adhesion molecules14.
