BACKGROUND Little is known about whether the physiological factors that determine the circadian variation in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) onset and thrombolysis efficacy may affect myocardial perfusion and long-term outcome of patients with STEMI treated with primary angioplasty. METHODS Our study population consisted of 1548 consecutive patients with STEMI treated by primary angioplasty between April 1997 and October 2001. All clinical, angiographic, and follow-up data… CONTINUE READING
