  1. Data are displayed as percentage, unless otherwise indicated. *Ischemia duration denotes time between onset of symptoms and until PCI; ‡successful reperfusion denotes TIMI 3 flow and myocardial blush grade 2 or 3;
  2. CABG = coronary artery bypass grafting
  3. CK = creatin kinase
  4. CK-MB = creatin kinase myoglobin binding
  5. MI = myocardial infarction
  6. PCI = percutaneous coronary intervention
  7. SD = standard deviation
  8. TIMI = thrombolysis in myocardial infarction
