OBJECTIVES Our purpose was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized trials comparing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the infarct-related artery (IRA) with medical therapy in patients randomized >12 h after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). BACKGROUND There is ongoing uncertainty about the risk-benefit ratio of late PCI in stable patients with AMI. METHODS PubMed, CENTRAL, and other databases were searched (July 2007). Studies were included if they compared… CONTINUE READING
