Background No-reflow developed after coronary revascularization is an independent predictor of in-hospital mortality and poor clinical outcome. In this study, we investigated the difference between direct stenting and stenting with predilation, regarding to development of no-reflow in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and the role of fibrinolytic system in that phenomenon.
