Predictors of mortality in patients with non-anterior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: Analysis from the HORIZONS-AMI trial.

Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-30690854


We sought to identify clinical, electrocardiographic (ECG), and angiographic characteristics that are predictive of 3-year mortality after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with non-anterior ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NA-STEMI) from the Harmonizing Outcomes With Revascularization and Stents in Acute Myocardial Infarction (HORIZONS-AMI) trial.


Which patients with NA-STEMI undergoing PCI have a poor prognosis is uncertain.


NA-STEMI was defined as ST-segment elevation in lateral (V5, V6, I, aVL), inferior (II, III, aVF), or inferolateral (I, II, III, aVF, and V5-V6) ECG leads or posterior myocardial infarction with ST-segment depression of ≥1 mm in ≥2 contiguous anterior leads. Cox regression was used to identify independent predictors of 3-year mortality. Missing data were imputed using multiple imputation.


In HORIZONS-AMI, 2,578/3,602 patients had no prior coronary artery bypass grafting, underwent single-vessel PCI, and had baseline ECG data assessed in an independent core laboratory. Among them, 1,495 (58.0%) had NA-STEMI. Patients with NA-STEMI had lower 3-year mortality risk than those with anterior STEMI (4.5% versus 7.1%, P = 0.004). The independent predictors of increased 3-year mortality in NA-STEMI were older age (median > 59.0 years), diabetes, reduced LVEF (≤50%), Killip class ≥2, post-procedure TIMI flow 0-2 versus 3, renal insufficiency, and ST-resolution <30% at 60 min post-PCI. Patients with 0, 1, 2, 3, and ≥4 of these risk factors had 3-year mortality rates of 1.8%, 2.3%, 3.1%, 6.1%, and 36.3%, respectively (P < 0.0001).


Although NA-STEMI carries a better prognosis than anterior STEMI, high-risk patient cohorts with NA-STEMI may be identified who have substantial 3-year mortality.
