Outcomes of incomplete and complete revascularization in ACS
Critical Care volume 17, Article number: P236 (2013)
This is a prospective study in which all ACS cases attending a level 3 hospital were collected consecutively from February 2004 to 2010, and were clinically followed-up until 2012.
Of a total 4,589 cases, only 2,515 were revascularized with ICP (1,742 complete and 907 incomplete; 160 failed). We split the cases into two main groups: STEMI and NSTEMI.
In our study patients undergoing ICP have higher survival rates in comparison with cardiac surgery except those >65 years old and diabetic groups in which cardiac surgery has higher ratios than ICP. In the rest of the groups, no matter how many coronary arteries were affected, only those with complete ICP present higher survival rates. It would be important to repeat this study in a multicentric cohort.
