  • ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) intervention comprises 2 components, the STEMI procedure and the STEMI process, which have unique aspects that can be modified and improved, ultimately affecting patient outcome. The 15 illustrated cases in this article highlight suggested improvements mainly in the STEMI procedure, with some references as to how the authors practically improved the STEMI process for the described procedure. The illustrated procedures have been meticulously selected from more than 1000 short door-to-balloon STEMI interventions recorded in the Single Individual Community Experience Registry (SINCERE) database, and are aimed at educating the reader about unique STEMI skills.
