Early and serially updated predictions of final infarct-size and clinical outcome--before, during and after reperfusion treatment of ST-elevation myocardial infarction might allow a more individualized treatment: High-risk patients with a predicted major loss of viable myocardium can be identified immediately or during therapy, at a stage when treatment may still be modified; and low-risk patients with predictions of small infarcts and good outcome already after standard primary reperfusion therapy can be identified and thereby avoid a possibly harmful intensified treatment. The necessary information for such predictions seem to be available from the standard 12-lead ECG and from ST-segment monitoring. Today this information, however, is not readily available in clinical practice. Automated algorithms need to be engineered for a broader use and for possibilities of a refined triage and thus for a more individualized strategy of reperfusion therapy.
