AB - While primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has significantly contributed to improve the mortality in patientswith ST segment elevation myocardial infarction even in cardiogenic shock, primary PCI is a standard of care in most ofJapanese institutions. Whereas there are high numbers of available facilities providing primary PCI in Japan, there are noclear guidelines focusing on procedural aspect of the standardized care. Whilst updated guidelines for the managementof acute myocardial infarction were recently published by European Society of Cardiology, the following major changesare indicated; (1) radial access and drug-eluting stent over bare metal stent were recommended as Class I indication, and(2) complete revascularization before hospital discharge (either immediate or staged) is now considered as Class IIa recommendation.Although the primary PCI is consistently recommended in recent and previous guidelines, the device lagfrom Europe, the frequent usage of coronary imaging modalities in Japan, and the difference in available medical therapyor mechanical support may prevent direct application of European guidelines to Japanese population. The Task Force onPrimary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention of the Japanese Association of Cardiovascular Intervention and Therapeutics(CVIT) has now proposed the expert consensus document for the management of acute myocardial infarction focusing onprocedural aspect of primary PCI.
