Cardiovascular diseases lead to one third of the deaths worldwide, surpassing the mortality rate produced by neoplasia, acute respiratory failure and diabetes mellitus all together. In the world, approximately 17 million die annually because of cardiovascular disease and every 5 seconds one is suffering from a myocardial infarction.
At the beginning only small parts of the patients were transferred to the hospital in charge for STEMI, so, we chose to study patients from the second year of the program and from last year.
We made a retrospective study, including patients with STEMI that reached our hospital for primary angioplasty in the papillary thyroid carcinoma journal 12h after the debut papillary thyroid carcinoma journal the symptoms, aiming to make a parallel between the in-hospital mortality rates at maximum one month after the primary PCI.
In order to be included, the patients must present ST elevation and another 1 out of 3 criteria clinical, echocardiographic and biological changes suggestive for myocardial infarction. The main target was to evaluate the evolution of early mortality rates post primary PCI after the changes in the ESC Guidelines and the papillary thyroid carcinoma journal in the medical field.
A secondary target was to correlate mortality rates with the presence of comorbidities or risk factors.
