Primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty accelerates early myocardial reperfusion compared to thrombolytic therapy in patients with acute myocardial infarction.

BACKGROUND Successful early reperfusion of the infarcted myocardium as indicated by complete resolution of ST-segment elevations has been shown to be associated with an improved outcome in patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (AMI). The aim of this study was to compare early ST resolution in patients treated with primary percutaneous… CONTINUE READING
