This article covers the results of study of coronary bed state in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) according to coronary angiography data. Examinations showed that a single-vessel disease of coronary branches occurred more often than a multivessel one. Right coronary artery (RCA) and left anterior descending artery (LAD) diseases were registered most often out of three main coronary arteries. RCA narrowing occurred more often in case of the single-vessel disease than in the multivessel one. Left main coronary artery trunk (LMT) narrowing was found significantly rarer. TIMI flow 3 was found significantly more often after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). An average length of implanted stents was (23.2±3.1) mm, an average diameter was (2.84±0.28) mm, an average balloon inflation pressure was (14.0±0.67) atm. According to Syntax Score evaluation examined patients got (21±1.23) points. These signs have favorable prognosis.
