Following the introduction of intracoronary thrombolysis in the acute phase of myocardial infarction (AMI), transcutaneous coronary angioplasty (TCA) was originally conceived as a logical complementary procedure to treat residual stenosis and so prevent the frequent post-thrombolysis reocclusion (20-30 p. 100 of cases). With increasing experience TCA of first intent appeared rational, more rapid and effective, ensuring coronary recanalisation (CR), suppression of residual stenosis and the prevention of reocclusion in the same procedure with with the objective of reducing the number of coronary bypass grafts (CBG) in patients with single vessel disease. A French multicentre study of 22 cases was organised by 9 centres. The average period between onset of symptoms and intervention was 2 hours 10 mins (range 30 mins-5 hours 30 mins). The average duration of the procedure was only 30 mins. 16 patients had anterior and 6 patients inferior AMI. Coronary angiography showed 12 occlusions (54.5 p. 100) and 10 sub-occlusions with 6 cases of delayed opacification. All patients had successful initial TCA with no major complications. The arterial occlusions decreased from 100 p. 100 to 31 p. 100 and the subocclusions from 94 to 12 p. 100. 2 patients died in the hospital period, one at the 48th hour of controlateral AMI and the other one at the 5th day of reocclusion. Three patients developed reocclusion at the site of the original TCA. Complete regression of ECG changes was observed in 31.8 p. 100 of cases. Complete recovery of normal left ventricular function was observed in 8 of the 17 patients who underwent follow-up investigations (47 p. 100 of cases).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
