Abstract. Management of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in India essentially rests on the established reperfusion strategies with unique adaptations compelled by the socioeconomic structure of the country. Due to limited availability of trained interventionists coupled with financial limitations, thrombolysis remains the most utilised reperfusion therapy for AMI. Patient education through the active participation of physicians concerning the early detection of symptoms suggestive of AMI can enhance the impact of thrombolysis on the outcomes by narrowing the door-to-needle time. This article discusses some of these unique issues and possible solutions in the emerging economies to optimise outcomes in AMI.
