Coronary Angiography and Interventions: All patients were treated by complying with the recommendations of NSTEMI guideline.9 Coronary angiography was performed in all patients using the standard techniques.
In our study, 53 (71.6%) patients had STEMI and NSTEMI. In these patients, 46 (86.7%) patients had IWMI.
Patients with UA (37.24 [+ or -] 15.57 ng/ ml) had low serum CML level as compared to NSTEMI (51.04 [+ or -] 25.76 ng/ml) and STEMI (45.51 [+ or -] 22.27 ng/ml) patients [Figure 1], and the difference was statistically significant.
"This longitudinal community surveillance of hospitalized NSTEMI patients suggests black patients have more comorbidities and less likelihood of receiving guideline-based NSTEMI therapies, and these findings persisted across the 15-year period," the authors write.
Cardiomyocyte damage as quantified by hs-cTn blood concentrations is not unique to only NSTEMI but is also associated with other cardiac disorders, including heart failure, tachyarrhythmias, left ventricular hypertrophy, hypertensive crises, cardiomyopathies, valvular heart disease, myocarditis, and even stable coronary artery disease (1, 2).
A 74-year-old female patient with an acute non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) was referred for coronary angiography.
He was, therefore, transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for respiratory and circulatory support for a likely non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) with hypoxia from presumed cardiogenic pulmonary oedema +/- cardiogenic shock.
Final diagnosis of non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), unstable angina (UA), or other causes of chest pain was set based on independent opinions of two cardiologists, after analysis of all available data and tests gathered during the hospital stay.
(3) To assess any association between STEMI, NSTEMI, and Unstable Angina in terms of LVEF, angiographic appearance, and overall outcomes.
ACS surrounds three clinical conditions that result from an acute imbalance between myocardial oxygen supply and demand: unstable angina (UA), non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) [2,3].
Moreover, ACS includes unstable angina, non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), and ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
One hundred thirty six patients (52%) patients were ST elevation MI (STEMI) and 126(48%) patients were non-ST elevation MI (NSTEMI).
