Measurement of left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) is readily obtainable in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, the prognostic utility of LVEDP during primary PCI has never been studied. LVEDP was measured in 2,797 patients during primary PCI in the Harmonizing Outcomes with RevascularIZatiON and Stents in Acute Myocardial Infarction (HORIZONS-AMI) trial. Outcomes were assessed at 30… CONTINUE READING
