The mortality among 253 patients with definite, acute myocardial infarction admitted to the coronary care unit (CCU) of the New Orleans VA Hospital during a two-year period is reported. Thirty-one (12.3%) of these patients died in the CCU. Five others died on the medical wards after release from the CCU. ...

The prognosis of 141 patients with obstructive left main coronary artery disease was studied. The patients were followed up for 5 to 10 years from the date of coronary arteriography. The 5 year cardiac mortality rate was 51 percent. During the first 3 years after diagnosis, the mortality rate was ...

In a retrospective study of patients with acute myocardial infarction admitted to a coronary monitoring unit in 1971 12 per cent (39 patients) had low voltage electrocardiograms within 72 hours of admission. Of these, 7 patients (18%) died while in hospital and a further 9 (23%) died within one year ...

Repeated measurements of maemodynamic status were made and were subsequently subjected to analysis to assess prognosis in a group of patients with acute myocardial infarction and pump failure. Two multivariate methods were used: correspondence analysis and discriminant analysis. Both these methods agreed with the highest prognostic reliability of left ventricular ...

Of 880 patients admitted consecutively to a coronary-care unit with acute myocardial infarction, 200 had had a previous infarction. The mortality-rate in the first twenty-eight days after infarction was higher in the group with recurrent infarction (26 per cent) than in the group with first infarctions (16.9 per cent). When ...

Postextrasystolic potentiation (PESP) and 1-epinephrine infusion have previously been shown by the ventriculographic technique to augment left ventricular wall motion in patients with coronary artery disease. The present study relates the magnitude of this augmentation to short-term prognosis in 56 patients with coronary artery disease and a factor already identified ...

Three hundred and sixty-four men who survived a first episode of acute coronary insufficiency or myocardial infarction for 28 days were admitted to a coronary heart disease secondary programme between 1 January 1961 and 31 December 1971. Of these, 252 have been followed for at least 4 years. The 4-year ...

A young woman with scleroderma heart disease is presented. Complete work-up including hemodynamic studies revealed biventricular dysfunction, left ventricular hypokinesia and normal coronary arteries with slow flow velocity in coronary arteries. This finding, though not diagnostic, is consistent with small vessels disease secondary to scleroderma. Favorable prognosis in our patient ...

Factors related to 2-year and 4-year prognosis after acute myocardial infarction were studied in a series of 158 men. Stepwise multiple discriminant analysis was applied to findings recorded during hospital admission and to results of an exercise test carried out 6-8 weeks after the infarction. The best indicators for predicting ...

Evaluation of the results of surgery for coronary artery disease requires a knowledge of the clinical course of patients not having this mode of treatment. To obtain such information we performed a retrospective analysis of the fate of 266 patients with arteriographically documented significant stenosis following from one to ten ...

In 1971, altogether 266 acute coronary accidents in persons aged up to 65 years were recorded among the population of the City of Plzen. Of this number, 25% of men and 18% of women died during the prehospitalization phase. 203 persons were admitted to hospital: the development of their disease ...

A communitywide study was conducted in all 16 acute general hospitals in the metropolitan Worcester, Mass, area during the calendar years 1975, 1978, and 1981 to examine time trends in the attack and case-fatality rates of patients hospitalized with validated acute myocardial infarction as well as of the occurrence of ...

Mortality from coronary heart disease has been declining steadily over the past 20 years in Auckland. The possibility that improved survival contributed to this decline was examined in patients who survived four weeks after myocardial infarction, changes in the severity of the disease being controlled for. Patients who had had ...

Myocardial hibernation is a potentially reversible cause of resting left ventricular dysfunction in some patients with coronary artery disease. Successful revascularisation in these patients can lead to improved ventricular function and hence improved prognosis. This review discusses the pathophysiology of myocardial hibernation and the methods that are currently available to ...
