BACKGROUND Aortic counterpulsation has been observed to reduce the rate of reocclusion of the infarct-related artery after patency has been restored during acute myocardial infarction in observational studies. To evaluate the benefit-to-risk ratio of aortic counterpulsation during the early phase of myocardial infarction, a multicenter randomized clinical trial was performed. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients who had patency restored during acute cardiac catheterization within the first 24 hours… CONTINUE READING
