Abstract

We evaluated the frequency and prognosis of emergency coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute myocardial infarction in a large, multicenter registry of contemporary PCI. In this study, emergency CABG occurred in 2% of cases, and was associated with high in-hospital mortality (20%) and with a high incidence of stroke (8%), renal failure requiring dialysis (8.3%), and bleeding (63.3%).
