BACKGROUND There are limited contemporary data comparing long-term outcomes after cardiac catheterization for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non-STEMI (NSTEMI). METHODS AND RESULTS We studied patients undergoing cardiac catheterization for STEMI (n=2413) and NSTEMI (n=1974) between 1999 and 2005 with at least 1 significant coronary lesion > or =75%. We compared adjusted mortality rates over restricted time intervals and the differential impact of early… CONTINUE READING
