  • The variables most amenable to change are process measures, and many have been associated with improved long-term outcomes [ 23 24 25 ] . Examples include door-to-needle time in patients with suspected myocardial infarction, use of appropriate antibiotics in patients with community-acquired pneumonia, and use of beta-blockers in patients with cardiac ischemia.

  • There is currently only one ongoing randomized placebo-controlled trial of early versus delayed statin therapy in this setting, A-2-Z (Aggrastat to Zocor, Merck) [ 29 ] . The A-2-Z study is evaluating the efficacy of early treatment with simvastatin in 4,500 patients following an episode of unstable angina or a non-Q wave myocardial infarction.

  • When injected into rats with experimental myocardial infarction, these CD34 +cells contributed to new vessel growth, which led to decreased cardiomyocyte apoptosis, to reduced remodeling, and to improved cardiac function.

  • Consequently, it remains uncertain whether one can extrapolate the MIRACL trial results to those who undergo coronary revascularization shortly before or after a coronary event, who present with a Q-wave myocardial infarction, who are treated with platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors, or who have relatively low admission LDL cholesterol levels.

  • MIRACL enrolled 3,086 patients within 24-96 hours (mean 63 hours) of admission for unstable angina or a non-Q-wave myocardial infarction and randomized them to 16 weeks of atorvastatin 80 mg or placebo once daily [ 5 ] . The major exclusion criteria were: total cholesterol level greater than 270 mg/dL; Q-wave myocardial infarction on admission or during the previous month; and, coronary revascularization in the months before admission, during the index hospitalization or anticipated following hospital discharge.
