OBJECTIVES This study sought to investigate changes in myocardial perfusion after direct percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in acute myocardial infarction (MI). BACKGROUND After initially successful recanalization of the infarct-related artery, coronary perfusion may deteriorate as a result of reocclusion, distal embolization of platelet aggregates formed at the dilated plaque or microvascular reperfusion injury. This change could offset the benefit from early intervention… CONTINUE READING
