Approximately 330,000 ST-elevation myocardial infarctions (STEMI) occur yearly in the United States. Emergent reperfusion is the cornerstone of STEMI therapy and the key to restoration of coronary blood flow in an infarct-related vessel. Reperfusion methods include thrombolysis, primary percutaneous coronary intervention, or both methods combined. Selection of the appropriate reperfusion strategy is essential, along with having an efficient system of care capable of delivering these therapies. Timely reperfusion is highly dependent on a well-structured care system designed to meet the needs of each individual community. This article reviews the data behind different reperfusion strategies and introduces successful systems-of-care models.
