The present study aimed to evaluate, in a single-center cohort of patients with ST-segment elevation AMI, which time intervals were carefully and consistently measured, and the relations among ischemic time, in-hospital delays, and in-hospital survival. We included 499 patients (mean age 59 years; 80% men) who underwent successful primary percutaneous transluminal coronary… CONTINUE READING
