BACKGROUND Despite the significant survival benefit associated with successful reperfusion therapy for acute myocardial infarction, global indices of outcome left ventricular function, such as ejection fraction, have often demonstrated little or no improvement. Although these measurements are confounded by numerous clinical, physiologic, and angiographic variables, no comprehensive analysis of this issue in a large series of patients is available. We used the Global Utilization of Streptokinase… CONTINUE READING
