Impact of Sex and Contact‐to‐Device Time on Clinical Outcomes in Acute ST‐Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction—Findings From the National Cardiovascular Data Registry


BACKGROUND Emergent myocardial reperfusion via primary percutaneous coronary intervention is optimal care for patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Delays in such interventions are associated with increases in mortality. With the shift in focus to contact-to-device (C2D) time as a new perfusion metric, this study was… (More)
