Effect of transfer delay on left ventricular function after primary PCI for ST elevation myocardial infarction

Farshid, Ahmad; Arnolda, Leonard; Shadbolt, Bruce

Description

Background: Primary PCI (PPCI) is superior to thrombolysis for treatment of acute ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI). However, transfer to a PCI centre results in a treatment delay compared to those presenting directly to such hospitals. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of transfer delay on LV function and clinical outcomes in PPCI patients.
