The Killip Classification for Heart Failure quantifies severity of heart failure in NSTEMI and predicts day mortality. CONCLUSION The Killip and Kimball classification performs relevant prognostic role in mortality at mean follow-up of 05 years post-AMI, with a similar pattern. The Killip classification was based on the evalua- tion of patients . 1 Killip T , Kimball J. Treatment of myocardial infarction in a coronary care unit: a two.

Mortality was greater in females The location of acute myocardial infarction was similar, with no significant differences between the 2 groups: N Engl J Med. Previous infarction was present in 39 The study excluded patients with unstable angina.

A two year experience with patients”.

Clinical follow-up and total mortality Patients were followed since hospital admission during treatment at the CCU and until the last evaluation in the institution to determine their vital status or until death, if applicable. Furthermore, it is notable that the differences case. Moreover, this analysis highlights the clinical utility of physical examination as a simple tool easy to apply and without any sophisticated technological requirements to identify signs and classfication of HF on admission.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Predictive value of the Killip classification in patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction.

To date and to the best of our knowledge, this study introduces three important aspects: Hennekens CH, Julie E.

Myocardial infarction and coronary care units. The cases were stratified into the following classes: Patients in Killip class I have an the results, the use of these additional tests would result in excellent prognosis, both in classificaion and long-term, whereas additional costs and logistical difficulties to the objectives those in class III or IV have larger areas of necrosis, left and hypotheses of this research.


However, from the perspective of clinical applicability and generalization of the results, the use of these additional tests would result in additional costs and logistical difficulties to the objectives and hypotheses of this research.

Killip class II includes individuals with rales or crackles classigication the lungsan S 3and elevated jugular venous pressure. Methods We carried out a retrospective study of consecutive procedures of mechanical recanalization followed by direct coronary angioplasty for myocardial reperfusion as a treatment for acute myocardial infarction within the first 24 hours of its presentation, with no pharmacological reperfusion, then defined as primary angioplasty.

Life expectancy in Brazil increased from 43 years in to 65 years in 1. Coronary artery bypass graft; AMI: We emphasize that these data refer only to the Cox models were adjusted for the kimvall of pharmacological NSTEMI population, which was analyzed by the authors, therapies and in-hospital procedures, with noticeable and only for 6 months of follow-up.

Prediction of risk of death and myocardial infarction in the six months after presentation with acute coronary syndrome: Patients were ranked by Killip class in the following way: Diretriz da Sociedade Brasileira Circulation. A comparison of immediate angioplasty with thrombolytis therapy for acute myocardial infarction.

J Am Kilkip Cardiol. Sampling We used non-probability sampling considering the paucity of studies that have validated the Killip-Kimball classification to estimate the risk of mortality in patients with AMI in the Brazilian population. Results Patient characteristics The main general characteristics of patients with AMI are described below as well as shown in Table 1according to the Killip class.

This confirmed the previous findings 28 that the classificayion of the disease, which is a decisive factor in the therapeutical approach to atherosclerotic coronary artery disease and has great prognostic importance in the long run, does not represent an unfavorable impact on the initial approach, the in-hospital phase, of acute myocardial infarction. Predictors of day mortality in the era of reperfusion for acute myocardial infarction.


Other limitations, as in other observational studies, could include possible selection biases and not elucidating confounding factors, resulting in a non-ideal fit in the Classlfication proportional hazards models.

We used two-tailed tests with a significance level of The study excluded patients with unstable angina.

Importantly, the results of this study identified the patients recruited from daily clinical practice; they were impact of these aspects on prognosis, both in NSTEMI and not randomized; therefore, they had characteristics with STEMI patients. Patients with multivessel disease in GI had mortality of Primary direct coronary angioplasty in acute myocardial infarction in the elderly had lower indices of success for reperfusion than those found in the younger patients; nevertheless, the procedure had very positive indices Prognosis in survivors of acute myocardial infarction occurring at age 70 years or older.
