BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Patients with renal dysfunction (RD) experience worse prognosis after myocardial infarction (MI). The aim of the present study was to investigate the impact of admission estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) on clinical outcomes of patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI). SUBJECTS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated 4,542 eligible patients from the Korea Acute Myocardial Infarction Registry… CONTINUE READING
