BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Slower blood flow in the setting of acute myocardial infarction (MI) has been related to adverse outcomes, but the relationship of coronary blood flow after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in the setting of acute coronary syndromes to adverse outcomes and restenosis has not been well described. We sought to evaluate the correlates of pre- and post-PTCA coronary blood flow to shed light on potential modifiable determinants. METHODS The RESTORE… CONTINUE READING
