A total of 13-15% of STEMI patients undergoing PPCI presented an angiographic no-reflow phenomenon that predicts a 30-day and 6-month mortality and reduced left ventricular function.[7] The no-reflow phenomenon is independently associated with mortality, adverse ventricular remodeling, and patient prognosis.[6],[7] The current study reported an angiographic no-reflow phenomenon in 15.87% of STEMI patients undergoing PPCI.
Therefore, the objective of the current study was to evaluate the frequency and overall clinical as well as angiographic characteristics of young patients presenting with myocardial infarction.
Saw proposed a simple classification system for SCAD based on angiographic analysis.
Park and colleagues systematically identified coronary angiographic features of pMI using a database from 11 prospective PCI studies in which angiographies of patients with pMI (CK-MB >3x ULN) were reviewed independently by an angiographic core laboratory (Table 1) (29).
This recall includes all lots of these select sizes of the Beacon Tip Angiographic Catheters.
Incidentally, the angiographic stabilization/regression rate was identical whether LDL was lowered to 70-79 mg/dL, to 60-69 mg/dL, or to 59 mg/dL or less.
The conclusion was that infrapopliteal application of SES for critical limb ischaemia significantly reduces infrapopliteal vascular restenosis and improves long-term angiographic patency, thereby lessening the rate of repeat procedures because of recurrent (critical limb ischaemia) symptoms.
All aneurysms treated endovascularly from February 2002 to February 2003 were analysed using procedure records and angiographic pictures.
Since this patient had already had a coronary angiogram 4 years before the presentation and no report of a bridge was given, one possibility is that the use of antianginal agents presumably including nitroglycerine might have contributed to the augmentation of the angiographic appearance of the bridging.
A meta analysis of several randomized trials comparing drug eluting stents (DES) both with and without polymers and bare metal stents (BMS) revealed a significant and persistent progression in clinical and angiographic restenosis in DES up to 36/48 months of over 60%.
