[Correspondence] STREAM characterisation correction

In their discussion of modern management of acute myocardial infarction, Reed and colleagues (Jan 14, p 197)1 incorrectly assign our Strategic Reperfusion Early after Myocardial Infarction (STREAM) study to their section on rescue and facilitated percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and assert it “is not recommended”.2 STREAM was designed to address the needs of the large proportion of patients worldwide who present within 3 h of symptom onset and cannot undergo timely PCI within 1 h of first medical contact.
