An association between exposure to vehicular traffic in urban areas and the exacerbation
of cardiovascular disease has been suggested in previous studies. This study was
designed to assess whether exposure to traffic can trigger myocardial infarction.
We conducted a case–crossover study in which cases of myocardial infarction were
identified with the use of data from the Cooperative Health Research in the Region of
Augsburg Myocardial Infarction Registry in Augsburg, in southern Germany, for the
period from February 1999 to July 2001....
A substantial proportion of patients receiving fibrinolytic therapy for myocardial infarction
with ST-segment elevation have inadequate reperfusion or reocclusion of the
infarct-related artery, leading to an increased risk of complications and death.
We enrolled 3491 patients, 18 to 75 years of age, who presented within 12 hours after
the onset of an ST-elevation myocardial infarction and randomly assigned them to receive
clopidogrel (300-mg loading dose, followed by 75 mg once daily) or placebo.
The risk of sudden death from cardiac causes is increased among survivors of acute
myocardial infarction with reduced left ventricular systolic function. We assessed the
risk and time course of sudden death in high-risk patients after myocardial infarction.
We studied 14,609 patients with left ventricular dysfunction, heart failure, or both after
myocardial infarction to assess the incidence and timing of sudden unexpected death
or cardiac arrest with resuscitation in relation to the left ventricular ejection fraction....
A little over 50 years ago, my father had a heart
attack. He was driven to the hospital by friends
after having “indigestion” for 2 days. He spent
2 weeks as an inpatient on an unmonitored rehabilitation
ward and was treated principally with
warfarin and digitalis. He was lucky and survived,
but in that era, more than 20% of patients
with an acute myocardial infarction died.
The appropriate treatment for patients in whom reperfusion fails to occur after
thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction remains unclear. There are
few data comparing emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (rescue PCI) with
conservative care in such patients, and none comparing rescue PCI with repeated
Pilot studies suggest that intracoronary transplantation of progenitor cells derived
from bone marrow (BMC) or circulating blood (CPC) may improve left ventricular
function after acute myocardial infarction. The effects of cell transplantation in
patients with healed myocardial infarction are unknown.
This is a fully revised and updated edition of the major work that teaches health professionals to utilize the 12-lead ECG in daily clinical practice. It deals with the analysis of the morphology of ECG waveforms in order to diagnose many conditions not related to rhythm, including ischemia, acute myocardial infarction, and hypertrophy of the heart muscle. Almost all other texts of morphologic interpretation for non-cardiologists rely heavily on memorizing electrocardiographic patterns.
In clinical practice left ventricular (LV) function is commonly
evaluated by 2-D and M-mode echocardiography.
These modalities have significant limitations,and tissue
Doppler imaging (TDI) has been introduced as a quantitative
and more objective method for assessing myocardial
function. The TDI modalities include myocardial
velocity imaging,displacement imaging,strain rate imaging,
and strain imaging (Fig. 1).

This book on investigative electrocardiography is addressed to investigators who are
using electrocardiology as a research tool in epidemiological or clinical research or
in investigations on possible adverse responses of new pharmacological agents. The
primary emphasis of the book is on prognostic implications of ECG abnormalities in
the conditions covered, including the prevalence and incidence of ECG abnormalities in
We excluded from our book cardiac disorders with a relatively low population prevalence
that otherwise may be of great clinical interest.
