ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which aims to determine whether early percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) after thrombolysis is more effective than delayed PCI in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction in a prehospital setting or a community hospital emergency department. 37 studies met the selection criteria for the study. Meta-analysis showed that PCI and delayed PCI groups did not differ for death or the composite endpoint of death and reinfarction within 12 months.
