Infection increase the risk of heart attack and stroke

Scientists have found new evidence as to why in-season diseases should be carefully followed to prevent and protect against infections. Researchers from the US said that the person picked up the infection increase the risk of myocardial infarction and stroke, writes about this in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

Scientists have found that infection significantly increases the risk of myocardial infarction or stroke in the first two weeks after infection, and for the next three months. Most often, according to them, such infections are urinary tract infections, respiratory tract infections, and infections of the skin and blood.

“Infection is the trigger mechanism for the blood vessels were blocked and put us in a higher risk of such serious events, such as myocardial infarction and stroke”, – quotes the experts log.
For several years they watched as 1312 patients with myocardial infarction and 727 other patients with ischemic stroke. Scientists have found that over a third of patients with heart disease (almost 37%) recovered from the infection within three months before the event. Among patients with stroke there were almost 30%.

The researchers noted that infections may cause changes in the balance of blood, which increases the risk of thrombosis, contributing to the formation of clots. This, according to scientists, is associated with the ability of infections to cause inflammation in the body. Among the processes that run in it to prevent infection -adhesiveness of platelets, making them more clingy to the vascular wall.
