This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
This review will compare the efficacy of transporting people with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) to a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) centre for primary PCI (PPCI) compared to thrombolysis at the nearest hospital. The review will evaluate whether there is a limit to transport time where PPCI becomes less efficacious than thrombolysis. If possible, the review will compare the effect of concomitant antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapies administered alongside thrombolytic drugs.
