ABSTRACT
The article cites a study, which focuses on the effectiveness of routine invasive strategy (IS) within 24 hours of thrombolysis (TL) than an ischemia-guided conservative strategy (CS) for reducing clinical outcomes in patients with thrombolized ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI). In patients with thrombolized ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction, a routine invasive strategy within 24 hours of thrombolysis was better than an ischemia-guided conservative strategy for reducing death, nonfatal reinfarction, and ischemia-induced revascularization. The study was published in the 2004 issue of the journal "Lancet."
