The indications for urgent coronary angiography are stated in the guidelines for treatment of acute coronary syndromes. An invasive approach is considered the treatment of choice for patients presenting with ST elevation myocardial infarction within 12 hours of the beginning of symptoms. In the absence of contraindication, intravenous thrombolysis continues to be a valuable alternative to primary angioplasty within 3 hours of the beginning of clinical symptoms. Urgent coronary angiography continues to be recommended following the failure of thrombolysis, persistent myocardial ischemia after 12 hours of symptoms, recurrent myocardial ischemia following myocardial infarction or in the case of cardiogenic shock.
