OBJECTIVES This prospective observational study was conducted to examine the apparent impact of a systematic direct percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) strategy on mortality in a series of 66 consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) complicated by cardiogenic shock, and to analyze the predictors of outcome after successful direct PTCA. BACKGROUND Previous studies have reported encouraging results with PTCA in patients with AMI complicated by cardiogenic… CONTINUE READING
