BACKGROUND This study compared angiographically graded coronary blood flow with intracoronary Doppler flow velocity in patients during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) for acute myocardial infarction. Different TIMI angiographic flow grades (flow grades based on results of the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction trial) have been associated with different clinical results after reperfusion for acute myocardial infarction. However, intracoronary blood flow velocity has not… CONTINUE READING
