Abstract

Scant data are available on the relation between ST-segment elevation (STE) resolution and 30-day mortality in patients with STE acute myocardial infarction treated with percutaneous coronary intervention in contemporary, real world, clinical practice. Furthermore, whether the prognostic value of STE resolution is influenced by the patient clinical risk profile or postprocedural Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) flow has never been investigated. Lombardima was an observational registry implemented in Lombardy, a Northern Italian region. The clinical characteristics, electorcardiographic parameters, and procedural data were prospectively entered into a Web-based database. In the present study, we enrolled 3,403 patients. STE resolution occurred in 2,452 patients (group 1) and did not in 951 patients (group 2). The mortality rate was 2.4% in group 1 and 11.3% in group 2 (p
