Study Group is an Academic Research Organization based at Brigham and Women's Hospital that has been leading practice-changing cardiovascular clinical trials for 30 years.
O'Donoghue said that the TIMI
study group was brought in by Merck for a "second perspective," to add rigor to an examination of events that had not been anticipated in the base period of the LOFT study.
Coronary flow was graded using standard TIMI
Morphology of the IRA, angiographic features of the target lesion, TIMI
flow grades before and after primary PCI, culprit lesion stenosis degree, target lesion length, previous stent placement and luminal diameter were assessed for every patient.

y GRACE para el sindrome coronario agudo en una cohorte contemporanea de pacientes" Acta Med Colomb 2015; 40(1):71-73.
Se realizo un analisis univariado de cada variable, incluida en la escala de probabilidad de Braunwald y colaboradores  y en el puntaje de riesgo de TIMI
, con ayuda del programa SPSS.
Thus, these data are no more convincing to us than the TIMI
Coronary angiography shows TIMI
2 flow in LAD coronary artery
Patients without prior coronary angiography were assigned 1 point if there was a history of myocardial infarction, in accordance with the suggestion by the authors of TIMI
Patients with coronary ectasia, anomalies, coronary vasospasms, non-selective coronary angiographies, cardiomyopathies, heart failure, and valvular or congenital heart disease, and those with arrhythmias which could induce hemodynamic changes likely to affect the TIMI
frame count were excluded from the study.
Two independent operators reviewed and analyzed digitally recorded coronary angiograms to further obtain lesion characteristics, target vessel, complications of procedure, deliverability of the AJ device, determination of procedural success, and TIMI
Certain elements from the TIMI
Risk Score such as the ECG and troponins bear specific mention.
