Treatment for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (MI) has advanced rapidly in the last few years with improvements in early fibrinolytic therapy, primary percutaneous revascularization, and use of potent platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors. It is now obvious that establishing epicardial patency after myocardial infarction is not synonymous with tissue- level perfusion. Techniques and therapies are now available that measure true tissue-level perfusion and that may improve tissue-level perfusion after myocardial infarction. (C) 2000 by Excerpta Medica, Inc.
