BACKGROUND: The growing penetration of mechanical reperfusion in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) has been achieved by the creation of new percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) centres which have helped to shorten delays but have compromised PCI volumes.
AIM: To compare the outcomes in STEMI patients treated in PCI centres with or without surgical back-up.
METHODS: Data concerning 1,650 registry patients was analysed. The analysis was based on cathlab classification with cardiac surgery on site (n = 996) and without (n = 654).
RESULTS: There was a 0.3% rate of transfer (two patients out of 654) for urgent coronary artery bypass grafting from PCI centres without cardiac surgery on site. There were no differences in in-hospital and long-term mortality in patients in both studied groups.
CONCLUSIONS: No differences in short and long-term outcomes were noticed for STEMI patients treated in centres with or without cardiac surgery on-site.
