OBJECTIVES This study was undertaken to assess prospectively the prognostic power of early ST segment elevation resolution in a large cohort of patients with myocardial infarction and to test the value of differences in ST segment resolution as a surrogate end point. BACKGROUND Previous studies revealed that the use of two cutoff points for three groups of ST segment resolution within 3 h after the start of thrombolysis is most effective in predicting outcome. METHODS The International… CONTINUE READING
