Mortality after Bleeding versus Myocardial Infarction in Coronary Artery Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
CONCLUSIONS: Compared with MI, major and late bleeding is associated with a similar increase in mortality, whereas early bleeding might have a stronger association with mortality.PMID:33840639 | DOI:10.4244/EIJ-D-20-01197 (Source: EuroIntervention)
