The systemic risk factors that predispose to atherosclerosis and thus MI are well understood at a population level. The INTERHEART study showed 90% of the risk of MI could be explained by nine ‘modifiable’ factors: cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, obesity, lack of exercise, poor diet, psychosocial factors and alcohol (protective) . A person with all risk factors has a risk of MI 334 times that of someone with none of the risk factors. This was interesting in the face of the enormous efforts spent trying to find genetic variants that confer an increased risk of MI, and our not infrequent encounters with patients suffering accelerated coronary artery disease and a family history strongly suggesting autosomal-dominant inheritance.
Looked at the use of peri-operative ketamine infusions for opioid-dependent patients with chronic back pain undergoing spinal surgery . 5 mg kg−1 at induction followed by a continuous infusion of 10 μg kg−1 min−1 until wound closure.
