Title : Time to revisit timing in Primary PCI for STEMI

Abstract:

Introduced 30 years ago, reperfusion therapies have become standard of care in the acute management of ST elevation MI. The criteria for assessing success of these strategies have not kept apace with the refinement of primary PCI systems of care. It is about time these legacy measures shaped by early reperfusion trial criteria are updated to reflect the predominant focus of contemporary clinical practice.
