The optimum reperfusion pathway for ST elevation acute myocardial infarction: development of a decision framework

By J Kendall

Abstract

There is currently much debate about the relative roles of pharmacological reperfusion (ie, thrombolysis) and mechanical reperfusion (ie, primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) in the management of patients with acute ST segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI). Whilst the scientific debate is reaching some resolution in terms of appropriate interpretation of the evidence base, there are still significant resource issues within the UK that limit our ability to implement gold standard reperfusion therapy
