This retrospective observational analysis of ST-elevation myocardial infarctions (STEMIs) from a California database found that patients who had a STEMI while hospitalized for a non–acute coronary syndrome condition were less likely to undergo invasive testing or intervention and had a higher in-hospital mortality rate than those with outpatient onset of STEMI.
An anaylis of Swedish registy databases found that β-blockers reduced all-cause mortality but did reduce combined all-cause mortality or heart failure hospitalization among patients with preserved ejection fraction.
This retrospective pooled analysis of 8 clinical trials reports that obstructive non–infarct-related artery disease was common among patients presenting with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
