Relationship of plasma neuropeptide Y with angiographic, electrocardiographic and coronary physiology indices of reperfusion during ST elevation myocardial infarction.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: The co-transmitter neuropeptide Y (NPY) is released during high levels of sympathetic stimulation and is a potent vasoconstrictor. We defined the release profile of plasma NPY during acute ST elevation myocardial infarction, and tested the hypothesis that levels correlate with reperfusion measures after treatment with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). DESIGN: Prospective observational study. SETTING: University hospital heart centre. PATIENTS: 64 patients (62.6±11...
