Door-to-Balloon Time and Mortality among Patients Undergoing Primary PCI
Hospitals participating in the CathPCI Registry were tracked for performance and outcomes for door-to-balloon times in patients undergoing PCI for acute STEMI. There were nearly 97,000 admissions for PCI for acute STEMI 2005-2009. Mean door-to-balloon time decreased from 83 to 67 minutes. The percent of patients meeting the threshold of 90 min door-to-balloon time increased from 60% to 83%. Mortality was not affected by these changes.
