Acute coronary syndrome ACS is a syndrome a set of signs and symptoms due to decreased blood flow in the coronary arteries such that part of the heart muscle is unable to function properly or dies. Many people with acute coronary syndromes present with symptoms other than chest pain, particularly women, older patients, and patients with diabetes mellitus. When symptom is prolonged to more than 30 minutes the diagnosis is Acute myocardial infarction AMI classified under Acute Coronary Syndrome.

Coronary artery disease CAD risk factors include family history of CAD, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and tobacco use. Beyond that time, most patients have a clinical course similar to those with chronic stable angina. To view other topics, please log in or purchase a subscription.

These patients pose a unique diagnostic and management challenge, as concomitant multiorgan failure, electrolyte derangements, and coagulopathy further complicate the clinical picture. Acute myocardial infarction is characterized by myocardial necrosis and is diagnosed in the setting of a rise or fall in cardiac biomarkers in conjunction with clinical symptoms of ischemia, new ischemic electrocardiography ECG changes, new regional wall motion abnormalities on imaging, or findings on coronary angiography. It is typically precipitated by rupture or erosion of atherosclerotic plaque within a coronary artery, causing thrombosis and leading to an acute and commonly critical reduction in coronary blood flow. Summary of pathophysiology of myocardial ischemia: atherothrombosis secondary to spontaneous plaque rupture and demand ischemia supply—demand mismatch. However, as commonly seen in critically ill patients, myocardial injury may ensue in the absence of plaque rupture in the setting of increased demand, such as tachyarrhythmias and anemia.
Coronary artery disease CAD is a pathological process characterized by atherosclerotic plaque accumulation in the epicardial arteries, whether obstructive or non-obstructive. This process can be modified by lifestyle adjustments, pharmacological therapies, and invasive interventions designed to achieve disease stabilization or regression. The disease can have long, stable periods but can also become unstable at any time, typically due to an acute atherothrombotic event caused by plaque rupture or erosion. However, the disease is chronic, most often progressive, and hence serious, even in clinically apparently silent periods. The dynamic nature of the CAD process results in various clinical presentations, which can be conveniently categorized as either acute coronary syndromes ACS or chronic coronary syndromes CCS. The Guidelines presented refer to the management of patients with CCS. Our mission: To reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease.
Overview of Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS)
Despite improvements in interventional and pharmacological therapy for atherosclerotic disease, it is still the leading cause of death in the developed world. Hence, there is a need for further development of more effective therapeutic approaches. This requires better understanding of the molecular mechanisms and pathophysiology of the disease. Recent research in the last decade has changed our view of acute coronary syndrome ACS : from a mere lipid deposition to an inflammatory disease; from ACS exclusively due to plaque rupture to the novel definitions of plaque erosion or calcified nodule; from the notion of a superimposed thrombus with necessary lethal consequences to the concept of healed plaques and thrombus contributing to plaque progression. In the hope of improving our understanding of ACS, all these recently discovered concepts are reviewed in this article.
Acute coronary syndrome
Acute coronary syndrome is a term used to describe a range of conditions associated with sudden, reduced blood flow to the heart. One such condition is a heart attack myocardial infarction — when cell death results in damaged or destroyed heart tissue. Even when acute coronary syndrome causes no cell death, the reduced blood flow changes how your heart works and is a sign of a high risk of heart attack. Acute coronary syndrome often causes severe chest pain or discomfort.

Acute coronary syndromes result from acute obstruction of a coronary artery. Symptoms are similar in each of these syndromes except sudden death and include chest discomfort with or without dyspnea, nausea, and diaphoresis. Diagnosis is by ECG and the presence or absence of serologic markers.

Pathophysiology of Acute Coronary Syndrome
Ему было не привыкать работать допоздна даже по уикэндам; именно эти сравнительно спокойные часы в АНБ, как правило, были единственным временем, когда он мог заниматься обслуживанием компьютерной техники. Просунув раскаленный паяльник сквозь проволочный лабиринт у себя над головой, он действовал с величайшей осмотрительностью: опалить защитную оболочку провода значило вывести аппарат из строя. Еще несколько сантиметров, подумал Джабба. Работа заняла намного больше времени, чем он рассчитывал. Когда он поднес раскаленный конец паяльника к последнему контакту, раздался резкий звонок мобильного телефона.
Так вы гражданин Канады. - Разумеется. Как глупо с моей стороны. Прошу меня извинить.
The underlying pathophysiology in ACS is decreased blood flow to part of heart musculature which is usually secondary to plaque rupture and formation of thrombus. Sometimes ACS can be secondary to vasospasm with or without underlying atherosclerosis.
