OBJECTIVES We examined the utility of early percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in a trial that encouraged its use after thrombolysis and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibition for acute myocardial infarction (MI). BACKGROUND Early PCI has shown no benefit when performed early after thrombolysis alone. METHODS We studied 323 patients (61%) who underwent PCI with planned initial angiography, at a median 63 min after reperfusion therapy began. A blinded core laboratory reviewed cineangiograms… CONTINUE READING
