    Examples/ definitions with source references

    "Ein Nicht-ST-Hebungsinfarkt, kurz NSTEMI, ist ein Myokardinfarkt, bei dem es im EKG nicht zu länger anhaltenden ST-Hebungen, also den typischen Infarktzeichen, kommt (siehe auch: STEMIAkutes Koronarsyndrom)."


    "NSTEMI bedeutet non-ST-elevation-infarction (Nicht-ST-Hebungsinfarkt). Es handelt sich also um einen Herzinfarkt ohne die sonst typische ST-Hebung im EKG."


    "Akuter Myokardinfarkt, zusammen mit instabiler Angina, wird als ein akutes Koronar-Syndrom bezeichnet. Akute Myokardinfarkte umfassen sowohl nicht ST-Hebungsinfarkte (NSTEMI) als auch ST-Hebungsinfarkte (STEMI). Die Unterscheidung zwischen NSTEMI und STEMI ist von entscheidender Bedeutung, da die Behandlungsstrategien für diese beiden Einheiten unterschiedlich sind."


    Bei einem Nicht-ST-Hebungsinfarkt (NSTEMI) liegen ebenfalls eine Infarkt-typische Klinik und ein Untergang von Myokardgewebe vor; die Nekrosemarker (Troponine, CK-MB) sind dementsprechend positiv."


    "Allgemeine Prinzipien des Managements von Nicht-ST-Hebungsinfarkt (NSTEMI) und instabiler Angina"


    "Bei vorliegenden Symptomen wird die Diagnose des Myokardinfarktes durch Elektrokardiogramm (EKG) und Laborwerte gestellt.

    Anhand des EKG unterscheidet man den ST-Strecken-Hebungsinfarkt (STEMI; typischerweise mit komplettem Verschluss eines Koronargefäßes) vom Nicht-ST-Strecken-Hebungsinfarkt (NSTEMI). Wichtig zu wissen: beide sind bedrohlich!"


    Nach den neuesten Leitlinien unterteilt sich das akute Koronarsyndrom in Patienten mit ST-Strecken-Hebungsinfarkt (STEMI), Nicht-ST-Strecken-Hebungsinfarkt (NSTEMI) und instabiler Angina pectoris.

    Non-ST elevation MI (previously termed non-Q wave MI, often referred to as non-STEMI), is an unstable coronary syndrome which is differentiated from unstable angina by a subsequent rise in cardiac enzymes. ECG findings often include ST depression but do not include new pathological Q waves.”




    Non ST elevation myocardial infarction is a heart attack that occurs without ST segment elevation on the ECG. It usually means a coronary artery is partly blocked, so emergency treatment to restore the blood flow may not be needed, but the long-term prognosis is actually worse than for STEMI.”


    “His electrocardiogram (ECG) showed ischaemic changes, with dynamic troponin rise. He was discussed with cardiology on-call, the impression was non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), and he was admitted under the cardiology team for further management.”

    (Journal Article;Multicenter Study)

    BACKGROUND: Determining the infarct-related artery (IRA) in non-ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (MI) can be challenging."

    “Guidelines for the management of patients with Non-ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (NSTEMI) Acute Coronary Syndrome including unstable angina and Non-Q wave Myocardial Infarction”


    "Many people do not realize that there is more than one form of a heart attack. Some only involve a partial obstruction of blood flow. Heart specialists refer to this as a non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). NSTEMI is a milder form of heart attack and accounts for around two-thirds of all cases."


    "What Is a Non-ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction?

    A non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction, also called an NSTEMI or a non-STEMI, is a type of heart attack. While it's less damaging to your heart than a STEMI, it's still a serious condition that needs immediate diagnosis and treatment.”

    Once again there is great variation in the use of hyphens to be found, although I get the impression they are disappearing.

    non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction - Myokardinfarkt ohne ST-Streckenhebung

    Klinische Studien zur Myokardinfarkt ohne ST-Streckenhebung - Register für klinische Studien - ICH GCP


    Die eleganteste und idiomatischeste deutsche Formulierung darf hier nicht fehlen.

    Shouldn't that be paired with "myocardial infarction without ST-segment elevation"?

    "Among patients with unstable angina or myocardial infarction without ST-segment elevation, prasugrel did not significantly reduce the frequency of the primary end point, as compared with clopidogrel, and similar risks of bleeding were observed."

    "Clinical outcomes, risk stratification and practice patterns of unstable angina and myocardial infarction without ST elevation: Prospective Registry of Acute Ischaemic Syndromes in the UK (PRAIS-UK)""

    It may be the most elegant, but I don't think it's the most commonly used technical form in either language, and it can be worked out from first principles.
