Abstract: Treatment strategies and outcome of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have been mainly studied in middle-aged patients. With increasing lifetime expectancy, the proportion of octogenarians will substantially increase. We aimed to evaluate whether the benefit of currently recommended reperfusion strategies is maintained in octogenarians.
