    Title Patients at Low Risk for Periprocedural Myocardial Infarction Can Be Identified by Assessment Immediately Following Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.
    Date July 2003
    Journal The Journal of Invasive Cardiology

    Despite utilizing optimal anticoagulant therapy during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the incidence of periprocedural myocardial infarction (PPMI) remains 5 7% and evaluation of preprocedural clinical/angiographic characteristics has failed to reliably predict the likelihood of a PPMI. We hypothesized that immediate post-PCI assessment could identify a group of patients at very low risk for PPMI. A consecutive series of 258 PCI patients was stratified into 3 groups based on immediate post-PCI assessment. Group I (PPMI not expected) included those with an acceptable angiographic result of treated vessel (residual stenosis < 50%), TIMI 3 flow and absence of any intraprocedural complications. Group II (PPMI not unexpected) included those with an acceptable angiographic result, TIMI 3 flow but with any/all of the following: saphenous vein graft (SVG) PCI, transient closure of culprit vessel or major sidebranch, intracoronary thrombus, prolonged chest pain, electrocardiographic (ECG) changes, hypotension, resolved slow flow/no reflow, bailout glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor use, loss of a minor sidebranch or any angiographic residual stenosis > 50% with TIMI 3 flow. Group III (PPMI expected) included those with any angiographic result of native coronary artery or SVG with < TIMI 3 flow, unresolved chest pain, hypotension or ECG changes at the end of the PCI, loss of a major sidebranch or vessel, or persistent no-reflow. Group stratification was analyzed in relation to the incidence of PPMI (CK-MB > 3 times the upper limit of normal; 18 24 hours post-PCI). Rate of PPMI: Group I (1/141; 0.7%), Group II (7/71; 9.9%), Group III (5/11; 45.5%) (p < 0.001). The 3 groups did not differ in age, clinical presentation or stent use (p = NS). Sixty out of 105 patients (57.1%) with unstable angina, seventy-seven out of 146 patients (52.7%) with B2/C lesions, and 105/180 patients (58.3%) with unstable angina or B2/C lesions were stratified to Group I. This study demonstrates that immediate post-PCI evaluation of the clinical/angiographic characteristics can predict the likelihood of PPMI and a group of patients at a very low risk for a PPMI can be identified, in whom implications exist for limited hospitalization and post-procedural antithrombotic therapy.
