Thirty-day readmission rate after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is used as an index of quality of care, but the complete recovery from any myocardial damage needs 8 weeks. We evaluated the readmission rate 60 days after PCI, defined its predictors, and investigated its relationship with long-term prognosis.

Abstract

Thirty-day readmission rate after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is used as an index of quality of care, but the complete recovery from any myocardial damage needs 8 weeks. We evaluated the readmission rate 60 days after PCI, defined its predictors, and investigated its relationship with long-term prognosis.
