One of the main goals of the National Development Plan of Cardiology is the acknowledgement, and widespread national application of the modern, cathetertherapeutic treatment of the ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The present paper summarizes the main results dealt with the systemic thrombolytic treatment and the newest primary percutaneous intervention in the cases of STEMI, comparing the local and international literature data and also describes the the main elements of the Hungarian network scheduled for the primary PCI interventions. If all the prerequsite conditions are present, and the pain-to-needle time of the patients is less than 12 hours, the patients 30 day mortality has been decreased to 6 %-7 %, in contrast to the 15 % 30 days mortality rate gained by systemic thrombolysis.
