-segment depression. We defined major adverse clinical events (MACE) as in-hospital death, pulmonary edema, repeat MI, complete heart block (CHB), and ventricular arrhythmia. We compared these endpoints between two groups.
.1%–0.8% cases of coronary interventions [ 1 ]. Removal of the broken fragment becomes mandatory as they can lead to potentially life-threatening consequences of acute occlusion, myocardial infarction, arrhythmias, perforation, and thromboembolism [ 2 ]. Since
