BACKGROUND: Hospital performance models in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) are useful to assess patient management. While models are available for individual countries, mainly US, cross-European performance models are lacking. Thus, we aimed to develop a system to benchmark European hospitals in AMI and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), based on predicted in-hospital mortality. METHODS AND RESULTS: We used the EURopean HOspital Benchmarking by Outcomes in ACS Processes (EURHOBOP) cohort to develop the models, which included 11,631 AMI patients and 8276 acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients who underwent PCI...

AIMS: In the acute coronary syndrome setting, the interaction between epicardial coronary artery stenosis and microcirculation subtended by the culprit vessel is poorly understood. The purpose of the present study was to assess the immediate impact of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on microvascular resistance (MR) in patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). METHODS AND RESULTS: Thirty-eight patients undergoing PCI for NSTEMI were recruited consecutively...

BACKGROUND: Intra myocardial hemorrhage lesions (IMH) are underdiagnosed complication of ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We sought to determine the incidence, predictors and the prognostic value of IMH in STEMI using cardiac MR imaging (CMR) techniques. METHODS: We screened for inclusion consecutive patients with STEMI treated by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) within the first 12 hr of evolution. IMH lesions were identified on T2-weighted sequences on CMR between days 4 and 8 after PCI...
