Autopräkonditionierung - Myokardinfarkt
Figure 6: Phenomenon of autopreconditioning. During the early phase of acute myocardial infarction, various parameters of ischaemia are subject to changes: ST-elevation, CK-MB, myoglobin as well as ANP rise and fall in an episodic manner. They reflect alternating phases of coronary artery occlusion and spontaneous reperfusion. PTCA, in contrast, only causes one peak in the ANPconcentration curve, as we see only one occlusion and one reperfusion (see figure 4).
