Renal Acute MI Study
The purpose of this study is to determine if a sizable myocardial infarction (heart attack) results in negative changes to renal structure and function (i.e. has a negative impact on the kidneys).
To determine if the renal response to a myocardial infarction is a predictor of the patients future health.

Group 1 - Control
Non-Q wave MI subjects with normal cardiac and renal function (defined as eGFR >60ml/min) not undergoing a cardiac procedure involving contrast will serve as "control" for renal injury subjects.
Group 2 - stable CAD or non-Q wave MI
Patients undergoing coronary angiography +/- PCI for stable CAD or non-Q wave MI with normal cardiac and renal function (defined as eGFR >60ml/min) will control for the contrast STEMI patients are likely to receive as part of their post-MI management
Group 3 - Acute STEMI without chronic kidney disease
Acute STEMI patients (n=40), without chronic kidney disease (defined as eGFR ≥60ml/min).
Group 4 - Acute STEMI with kidney disease
Acute STEMI patients (n=40), with evidence of background chronic kidney disease (eGFR <60ml/min).
