ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) complicated by coronary microvascular obstruction (CMVO) is one of the major causes of death and of decrease of patient’s quality of life due to recurrent myocardial infarction and heart failure. High costs for health system are associated with death and recurrent hospitalization of STEMI patients. No single treatment against CMVO is currently considered effective to improve the clinical outcome so far of STEMI patients and their quality of life. This chapter will describe how different temporal windows may be used and integrated for treating CMVO starting from the pre-hospital to the coronary care unit phase.
