to determine if the aldosteronemy proves to be predictive of a cardiac remodeling in the 6 months following a STEMI (myocardial infarction with know-shift of the segment ST) revascularized in acute phase, independently of the conventional predictive parameters (size of the infarction measured in IRM, age, HTA…).

the relation between aldosteronemy and cardiovascular events could be mainly explained by the early and long-term noxious effects of the aldosterone on cardiac remodeling

Further study details as provided by Central Hospital, Nancy, France:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Aldosterone blood concentration in myocardial infraction [ Time Frame: June, 2014 ]
    Determine whether aldosterone blood concentration can predict cardiac remodelling 6 months after myocardial infraction with ST segment elevation independently of conventional parameters

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine if the potential deleterious action of aldosterone on cardiac remodelling is dependant on specific clinical settings [ Time Frame: June, 2014 ]
    Analysis of vascular function. Analysis of cardiac function, structure and strain by MRI and echocardiography.

Estimated Enrollment: 250
Study Start Date: April 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: aldosterone Procedure: aldosteronemy determination
to take a sample of blood

Detailed Description:
After myocardial infarction, the evolution towards cardiac failure is generally related to a progressive aggravation of the cardiac dysfunction, noxious remodeling. This one depends above all on wide on the after-effects on infarction, but also on other parameters such as the age and arterial hypertension. The aldosteronemy measured as of the first hours of the infarction is associated with a bad long-term forecast. The aldosterone interacts at the same time on the mechanisms of cicatrisation and cicatricial fibrosis and on the conditions of load (volemy, vascular function). Medications anti-aldosterone can antagonise these noxious effects but they are not without adverse effects and one cannot identify the patients likely yet to really profit from it: arterial hypertension could be a prerequisite (study EPHESUS), like the attack of a critical threshold of size of the infarction (principal remodeling factor)
