Many countries have embarked on national strategies to translate evidence from trials of reperfusion therapy for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) into clinical practice. Primary angioplasty has become the dominant mode of reperfusion, but the best outcomes depend on appropriate service re-configurations to ensure rapid, effective and comprehensive treatment. Although there are many differences in the treatment of STEMI and non-STEMI acute coronary syndromes (ACS), there are many parallels. Many of the changes in the system of care for STEMI patients could now be applied to the non-STEMI ACS population, providing faster and more efficient care and promising to deliver better outcomes. This article highlights additional changes to healthcare services that should be considered.
