BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to identify clinical factors, angiographic findings, and procedural features that predict no-reflow phenomenon (Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) flow grade < or =2) in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) who undergo primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS AND RESULTS A series of 382 consecutive patients with AMI underwent primary PCI within 12 h of symptom onset. Patients with ischemic symptoms continuing for more… CONTINUE READING
