abstract

  • The prevalence of coronary artery disease and ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are increasing in India. Although recent publications have focused on improving preventive measures in developing countries, less attention has been placed on the acute management of STEMI. Recent policy changes in India have provided new opportunities to address existing barriers but require greater investment and support in the coming years.
