Serum creatinine on admission predicts long-term mortality in acute myocardial infarction patients undergoing successful primary angioplasty: data from the Heart Institute of Japan Acute Myocardial Infarction (HIJAMI) Registry.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Data about the long-term mortality of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients with renal insufficiency who received sufficient early revascularization are scant, so the present study evaluated the impact of serum creatinine levels on the long-term mortality in patients with AMI undergoing successful primary percutaneous coronary intervention… (More)
