Despite the well-recognized role of platelets in the pathogenesis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and in the vascular responses to angioplasty, the relation between platelet count and outcomes after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in AMI is unknown. We therefore determined the effect of baseline platelet count on clinical and angiographic outcomes of patients with AMI undergoing primary PCI. In the prospective, randomized CADILLAC trial, platelet count on admission was… CONTINUE READING
