Effective and in time reperfusion of the infarct-related coronary artery is essential to optimal treatment for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Now it is established the benefit of primary percutaneous intervention (PPCI) in STEMI over fibrinolysis. While intervention of the non-infarct related artery still a large area of debate with no definite consensus. Here in this review we will highlight the different reperfusion strategies and different ways to reach optimal reperfusion and debate about non-IRA in different situations.

While intervention of the non-infarct related artery still a large area of debate with no definite consensus.
