Aborted myocardial infarction in patients with ST ‑segment elevation myocardial infarction treated with mechanical reperfusion

This study aimed to identify patients with abMI and compare them with the remaining patients with elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and find out if these patients have the same underlying cause of death.

Strategies to improve outcome in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction treated with primary PCI

A single punctured atherosclerotic plaque with overlying thrombosis leads to ischemia and progressively to the death of the myocardial cells, leading toSTEMI, in patients withSTEMI-positive hearts.

2017 ESC guidelines for the management of acute myocardial infarction in patients presenting with ST-segment elevation: comments from the Dutch ACS working group

The most important changes in recommendations in the 2017 ESC guidelines for the management of acute myocardial infarction in patients presenting with ST-segment elevation are discussed, relevant for both the general and interventional cardiologist.

ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: Historical perspective and new horizons

The role of angiography, pharmacotherapy, thrombus aspiration, management of multi-vessel disease, mechanical complications and cardiogenic shock and the quest for myocardial salvage are discussed.

Improving the secondary prevention of ST-elevation myocardial infarction.

Secondary prevention medications following ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have been established with NICE and European Society of Cardiology guidelines.[1,2][1] In practice, while most

Late Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Prevents Left Ventricular Remodeling and Improves Clinical Outcomes in Patients With ST‐Elevation Myocardial Infarction

The optimal strategy for treating late presenters of ST‐elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) remains uncertain and further research is needed to establish a single treatment strategy.

ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction

Acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is the leading cause of death in the United States and excellent societal guideline recommendations exist for STEMI care.
