Abstract: Introduction Spontaneous reperfusion (SR) in ST-elevation myocardial infarction has traditionally been assessed by coronary angiography. The frequency of SR varies widely in prior studies, and the clinical implications in the modern reperfusion era are unclear. Accordingly, using data from the ASSENT 4 PCI (ASsessment of the Safety and Efficacy of a New Treatment Strategy with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) study, we undertook a systematic assessment of SR using both electrocardiographic (ECG) and angiographic techniques.
