    We read with great interest the article by Politi et al. (1) on revascularisation of patients presenting with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in the context of multivessel coronary disease, and its accompanying Editorial. Whilst the data are interesting and hypothesis- generating, they fall short of demanding any change in current practice owing to a potential flaw in the study design and in the findings as pre...

    is it reasonable to separate the culprit-vessel only revascularization as a group from the culprit-vessel revascularization?

    We read with interest the work "A randomised trial of target-vessel versus multi-vessel revascularisation in ST-elevation myocardial infarction: major adverse cardiac events during long-term follow-up"by Luigi Politi. According to the conclusion of the article, culprit vessel- only angioplasty was associated with the highest rate of long-term MACE compared with multivessel treatment including simultaneous revascularizati...

    With great interest we have read the article by Politi et al(1) on revascularisation of patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction and multivessel disease. The authors are to be complimented with the largest randomised trial on this subject, with the longest follow-up.

    However, we question whether this study is the 'justification for complete revascularisation at the time of primary angioplasty', as the p...
