Example text

With the exception of a higher rate of emergent PCI in the deferred PTCA group (16% vs. 01), there were no differences in outcomes between the two groups. A substudy of the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI)-II study (TIMI-IIA) evaluated the role of immediate compared with delayed PTCA after t-PA in 389 patients (15). This study confirmed the findings of the early studies showing no difference in the primary end point of ejection fraction at one-year follow-up. 0% vs. 4% vs. 01). Facilitated PCI did not show benefits in mortality in an initial metaanalysis of the early trials (16) that was explained by higher rate of procedural complications and, especially, higher bleeding rates, that are well known related to worse survival (17).

More recently, data from the EMERALD trial (9) have shown a clear relationship between time-to-treatment, myocardial perfusion, and infarct size analyzed by scintigraphy. Similar finding has been observed in a pooled analysis of four trials performed by Stone et al. (10). A recent study conducted by Tarantini et al. (11) has evaluated the impact of time-to-treatment on infarct size, estimated by MRI. Supporting data by De Luca et al. (6), they observed a significant increase in infarct size by every 30 minutes delay to treatment.
