The article reports on a clinical trial on patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) to study the effectiveness of early transfer for angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). ST-segment elevation of 2 mm in 2 anterior leads or 1 mm in 2 inferior leads were shown by 1059 patients with STEMI who presented within 12 hours of symptom onset. Ischemic events were reduced in patients by early transfer for angiography.
