Evaluation of Garlic-Lemon Therapy on Clinical and Angiographic Outcomes in Patients with High-risk Acute Coronary Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.572
Synopsis: 
We evaluated the effects of garlic-lemon therapy on atherosclerosis, wherein combination therapy provided only symptomatic benefits. Although no angiographic regression was observed in atherosclerotic plaques, it was found to be associated with a decrease in the need for early revascularization.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Several natural supplementations have been investigated over centuries for a wide variety of ailments. There is limited information available on the effect and safety of these natural supplementations on patients with high risk coronary artery disease. We aim to evaluate the results of garlic and lemon therapy via clinical and angiographic outcomes in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction.

Cigarette Smoking Increases Pregnancy-associated Plasma Protein-A in Men

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.371
Pages: 
150–3
Synopsis: 
Elevation of pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A), is considered as an independent risk factor for acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We found significantly high PAPP-A level in the serum of male smokers and this may indicate a higher risk for ACS among these men.

Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) Risk Score as a Predictor of In-hospital Mortality for Acute Coronary Syndrome in Trinidad and Tobago

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.172
Pages: 
52–9
Synopsis: 
The GRACE risk score, which was developed in a predominantly Caucasian population, was not previously tested in a Caribbean population. This study found it to be a reliable predictor of in-hospital mortality in a multi-ethnic Trinidadian acute coronary syndrome population, making it a useful risk stratification tool.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine whether risk stratification using the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk score is a predictor of in-hospital mortality for ACS patients in a multi-ethnic Caribbean population.
