OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine predictors of successful coronary angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction (MI) and associated predictors of the major complications of in-hospital mortality and emergency coronary artery bypass graft surgery.

Forty laboratories have been contributing clinical and procedural… CONTINUE READING
