Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Magnesium (Mg) and calcium (Ca) concentrations were determined in the abdominal aorta of 28 patients who died by acute myocardial infarction (AMI), of 52 by ischemic heart disease (IHD) and of 26 subjects deceased by accidents or from causes other than atherosclerosis. Mg concentration in the fibrous and calcareous plaques, was significantly lower than in controls. The lowest Mg values were found in those who died by AMI. Calcium concentration, especially in the calcareous plaques, was enormous as against the controls. The four-seven times decreases of Mg/Ca ratio compared with the controls imply an alteration of the arterial wall cells. Magnesium deficit in the arterial wall probably plays a certain role in this process.
