OBJECTIVES This multicenter trial sought to assess the merits of facilitated percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) versus primary PCI in an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) network with long transfer distances in patients presenting early after symptom onset. BACKGROUND Facilitated PCI with fibrinolysis might be beneficial in specific high-risk STEMI situations to prevent myocardial necrosis expansion. METHODS Patients with STEMI (<3 h after symptom onset) were… CONTINUE READING
