Myocardial Infarction

Myocardial Infarction

Statin drugs may cause serious muscle damage more often than most doctors or clinical trials recognized, authors of a new review contend. However, the risk may not justify discontinuing the medication.

(EULAR 2014) A large population-based study from Canada finds the risk of myocardial infarction more than tripled in the first year after a Sjögren syndrome diagnosis, and a trend for increased stroke risk.

Insulin resistance is associated with myocardial injury in ST segment elevation myocardial infarction, and should be an important factor in management of the latter.

Dyslipidemia, insulinemia, and glycemia are among the most significant insulin resistance risk factors in the early recovery phases of myocardial infarction.

Myocardial infarction joins the list of cardiovascular disorders associated with atrial fibrillation, and premature atrial contraction proves a variable that can assess that risk.

A numerical measure of erythrocyte heterogeneity, RDW proves a reliable predictor of mortality in coronary artery disease patients due for stenting, and perhaps of cardiovascular disease burden in general.

Post-myocardial infarction, people whose eating habits resembled the Mediterranean diet were less likely to die of any cause, in data from large longitudinal studies.
