Abstract

The feasibility and safety of simultaneous multivessel percutaneous coronary intervention during mechanical reperfusion for acute myocardial infarction was analyzed in a retrospective, case-controlled study. Patients who underwent multivessel coronary intervention had a higher risk of adverse clinical outcomes through 6 months compared with matched controls in whom coronary intervention was limited to the infarct-related artery.
