Hospital transfer is associated with delays in performance of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Given the limited number of interventional centers in the United States, the transfer of patients is widely practiced. We compared the outcome of patients who were transferred for primary PCI and determined whether prolonged door-to-balloon times were associated with increased mortality. Patients who presented within 12 hours with ST-segment… CONTINUE READING
