    Abstract

    Of 36 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) who were referred for direct or rescue coronary angioplasty, 11 (31%) needed stent implantation. In 7 of them, the stent was implanted because of severe dissection and in 4, because of elastic recoil. All patients were discharged without clinical or electrocardiographic signs of reocclusion. No death, reinfarction or clinical evidence of ischemia occurred during up to 15 months of follow-up.
