Intra-Aortic Balloon Counterpulsation and Infarct Size in Patients With Acute Anterior Myocardial Infarction Without Shock: The CRISP AMI Randomized Trial

Study Questions:

What is the effect of routine intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation (IABC) placement prior to reperfusion in patients with anterior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) without shock on myocardial infarct size?
