OBJECTIVE This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between the occurrence of the angiographic no-reflow phenomenon in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and the preintervention plaque composition as assessed by virtual histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS). BACKGROUND The angiographic no-reflow phenomenon is an adverse prognostic factor in patients with AMI. METHOD We enrolled consecutive 50 patients with ST-elevation AMI was treated by primary stent implantation… CONTINUE READING
