ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' views on a study which found that rescue angioplasty reduces cardiovascular and cerebrovascular outcomes in acute MI after failed thrombolytic therapy. The REACT trial shows the superiority of rescue PCI over conservative treatment or repeated thrombolysis in patients without clinical reperfusion at 90 minutes after initial thrombolysis. A limitation of this study is that it does not specifically address the relative benefit that patients may achieve as a function of clinical evidence of successful versus failed thrombolysis.
