Primary percutaneous intervention (PCI) in acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (MI) is a preferred way of treatment nowadays.

In this case of an elderly lady, the use of "Mother and Child Technique" combined with super selective pharmacological intervention is demonstrated to achieve good blood flow when conventional means are not working.
