We evaluated the prognostic effect of baseline left ventricular function and the determinants of its recovery after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) treated by primary angioplasty. Left ventriculography was performed during the index procedure in 1,620 of 2,082 patients (78%) who underwent primary angioplasty for AMI in the CADILLAC trial. One-year survival rate was significantly lower in patients whose baseline left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) was <40% than in those whose LVEF was… CONTINUE READING
