Abstract

Aims: The prognosis of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for different subtypes of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) remains unclear. We compared short- and long-term mortality in patients undergoing PCI for unstable angina (UA), non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), and ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Methods and results: This was a retrospective cohort study of 13 184 patients (5966 STEMI, 5307 NSTEMI, and 1911 UA) undergoing PCI between 1 January 2005 and 30 November 2013 in a multi-centre registry. Clinical and procedural characteristics, as well as outcomes, were compared by ACS subtype. Long-term all-cause mortality data were obtained via ..
