BACKGROUND Patients with diabetes are at increased risk of death after acute myocardial infarction, independent of other baseline risk factors and more severe coronary artery disease. We studied the angiographic and electrocardiographic responses to thrombolytic agents in patients with diabetes; in particular ST-segment resolution as a measure of microvascular flow. METHODS Angiography was performed in 2588 patients at 90 minutes after thrombolytic agent administration as well as after… CONTINUE READING
