OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to compare the impact of primary stenting or percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients undergoing direct angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction (AMI). BACKGROUND Previous studies have demonstrated that coronary stenting reduces clinical and angiographic restenosis compared with PTCA. However, the impact of stenting on HRQOL from the patient's perspective remains unknown. METHODS We… CONTINUE READING
