Summary of "Association of Thrombocytopenia, Revascularization, and In-Hospital Outcomes in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction."

The impact of thrombocytopenia on revascularization and outcomes in patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction remains poorly understood. We sought to evaluate associations between thrombocytopenia, in-hospital management, bleeding, and cardiovascular outcomes in patients hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction in the United States.
