Outcomes Good With Ad Hoc PCI for Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest
from MedPage Today
An early invasive strategy of coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is associated with better outcomes at discharge for patients admitted for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest without ST-segment elevation, a Parisian registry study suggested. This population with an initially successfully resuscitation was more likely to have favorable neurological outcomes following emergent PCI than with no emergent PCI, an advantage that persisted after multi-variable adjustment.
