OBJECTIVE This study aimed to compare infarct size and clinical outcomes in patients with proximal versus mid left anterior descending (mLAD) infarction. BACKGROUND The extent of myocardium at risk is an important prognostic determinate in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. METHODS The INFUSE-AMI trial randomized patients with anterior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention with bivalirudin anticoagulation to… CONTINUE READING
