Abstract

Approximately 50% of patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who undergo primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have multivessel (MV) coronary artery disease (CAD) (1). These patients have higher risk of mortality in comparison with patients with single vessel CAD.
