abstract

  • In patients who undergo primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), poor post-PCI myocardial blush is associated with increased mortality, even when epicardial perfusion is adequate. This observation has important implications for the methods of evaluating primary PCI results and the strategies used to improve myocardial reperfusion.
