Objectives This study sought to assess whether the use of eptifibatide instead of abciximab is associated with a difference in outcomes of patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-segment elevation myocardial inf...

The preferred reperfusion strategy for early ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI, defined as time from symptoms onset ≤120 min) in non-capable percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) centres remains controversial. We sought to compare mor...

Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction is a powerful risk marker after acute myocardial infarction (MI). Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has markedly reduced myocardial damage of the left ventricle, but reliable data on RV damage usin...

Background Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has emerged as the strategy of choice in reestablishing effective flow in occluded infarct-related arteries in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) if it can be administered in a timely...
