The presence of bundle branch block (BBB) in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction has been associated with a poor outcome. However, the implications of BBB in patients undergoing primary angioplasty in the stent era are poorly established. Furthermore, the prognostic implications of BBB type (right vs left and previous vs transient or persistent) remain unknown. We analyzed the data from 913 consecutive patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction treated with… CONTINUE READING
