The de Winter T-wave ECG pattern may signify proximal left anterior descending artery occlusion and was suggested as ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) equivalent [1-3].
Our study shows that mitral regurgitation was found at nearly similar rates in STEMI and NSTEMI, in contrast to observation that were found in study done by Grigioni et al9 in which mitral regurgitation was found more in STEMI as compare to NSTEMI.
Discharge prescriptions for statins and clopidogrel were more common for the STEMI group.
In the recently published (prospective) study involving 5886 patients, the same relation for STEMI has been presented [57].
For example, a STEMI can feel like severe heartburn, so there is a considerable danger of people not understanding what they are experiencing, and don't receive prompt medical attention.
Aspirin is recommended in the ESC and ACCF/AHA guidelines as it has been used for patients with STEMI (Class I).

Globally, numerous studies have demonstrated that significant delays exist in the provision of any reperfusion strategy, including fibrinolytic therapy, to patients presenting with STEMI. [5-10] The largest time delay is attributed to delays by the patient in seeking medical attention.
Summary: There is also a parallel need to educate all healthcare personnel involved to quickly identify patients suffering from Stemi and start initial treatment.
