Abstract

Aims: The prognostic role (if any) of lactate for early mortality in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) submitted to primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is so far not elucidated. We therefore assessed whether lactic acid (LA) was a prognostic predictor for early mortality in 807 patients with STEMI submitted to primary PCI consecutively admitted to our intensive cardiac care unit (ICCU) from January 1, 2006, to December 31, 2009. Result: Higher levels of LA were found in older patients (P =.025) and were associated with a progressive decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (P
