Background: Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the treatment of choice for acute myocardial infarction, especially for high-risk patients, but the data for low-risk patients are conflicting. A very low-risk subgroup of acute inferior myocardial infarction can be identified by electrocardiographic and clinical criteria during admission. We aimed to compare the outcomes of primary PCI and streptokinase treatment in this subgroup, which has not been evaluated separately before.
