ABSTRACT
The article offers information on several researches conducted related to cardiology. Topics include the 1-year follow-up study on Thrombus Aspiration During Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Acute Myocardial Infarction, a study on the facilitated percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction, and a study on Bivalirudin during primary PCI in acute myocardial infarction.
