Abstract

Treatment of patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction has improved over past decades, with reperfusion therapy being the cornerstone in the acute phase. Based on the results of large randomised trials the current ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) recommend acute treatments and secondary prevention therapies. However, there are large variations between ESC countries in the treatment of patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Therefore the ESC has initiated a prospective registry to evaluate the current treatments and outcomes of these patients with a special focus on adherence to the ESC guidelines and on differences between countries and regions. This paper describes the methodology and design of the ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction registry conducted in collaboration of the Acute Cardiac Care Association and the European Association of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.
