Abstract

Coronary reperfusion with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) or fibrinolytic therapy improves outcomes in patients with acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) or an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with a new or presumably new left bundle branch block or a true posterior MI. If performed in a timely fashion, PPCI is the reperfusion therapy of choice compared to fibrinolysis because it achieves a higher rate of TIMI 3 flow. Here we describe a case of acute ST elevated anterior myocardial infarction managed with primary percutaneous coronary intervention with the insertion of a drug eluting stent in the Left anterior descending Artery without any procedural complication.
