Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Normalization Criteria after Angioplasty

Purpose:

To determine if reperfusion has occurred after primary angioplasty in a patient with an acute MI using the sum of ST segment elevations.

Specialty:

Cardiovascular Diseases, Cardiac Electrophysiology

Objective:

imaging studies, response to therapy

ICD-10:

I20, I21, I25, I70

Description:

van't Hof et al gave criteria for the degree of normalization of ST segment elevation following primary angioplasty in a patient with an acute myocardial infarction. This correlates with prognosis for the patients. The authors are from the Zwolle Myocardial Infarction Study  in Zwolle, The Netherlands.
