Do You Know How Young Your Heart Is?

Do You Know How Young Your Heart Is? AbstractWe present the case of a 25 years old patient who was submitted to our unit with a first time acute coronary syndrome. Despite his young age he had multiple cardiovascular risk factors. Although the chest pain was atypical and the electrocardiogram on presentation had unspecific changes, repeated investigations established the diagnosis of anterolateral myocardial infarction. Per primam angioplasty with stent implantation in the proximal segment of left anterior descending artery was performed, with good clinical outcome. Awareness is the key in establishing the diagnosis of myocardial infarction in young patients. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ARS Medica Tomitana de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractWe present the case of a 25 years old patient who was submitted to our unit with a first time acute coronary syndrome. Despite his young age he had multiple cardiovascular risk factors. Although the chest pain was atypical and the electrocardiogram on presentation had unspecific changes, repeated investigations established the diagnosis of anterolateral myocardial infarction. Per primam angioplasty with stent implantation in the proximal segment of left anterior descending artery was performed, with good clinical outcome. Awareness is the key in establishing the diagnosis of myocardial infarction in young patients.
