A worldwide perspective on pharmaco-invasive strategy for STEMI

Summary

If primary PCI is the gold standard for reperfusion in STEMI, why isn’t this the first strategy of choice worldwide?

Join K. F. Al-Shaibi, T. Cuisset and S. Khan as they spotlight the constraints that prevent many STEMI patients from having quick access to an interventionalist.
