Overview

This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition myocardial infarction
Treatment primary angioplasty in acute myocardial infarction
Phase phase 4
Sponsor San Camillo Hospital, Rome
Start date March 2003
End date March 2006
Trial identifier NCT00288210, 183/2003

Summary

The incidence of stent restenosis in the setting of primary angioplasty is particularly high, reaching a rate of 27% In the last years the introduction of drug-eluting stents has drastically reduced the incidence of restenosis in patients not requiring urgent revascularization. Whether drug-eluting stenting might constitute the new optimal therapy for patients with an acute myocardial infarction is unknown. To be able to answer this question, we designed a randomized trial in which patients with an acute myocardial infarction eligible for treatment with primary angioplasty and abciximab were randomized to receive either a rapamicine-eluting stent or a conventional bare stent.

Description The treatment of acute myocardial infarction has evolved dramatically in the last decade. Coronary angioplasty with stent implantation in conjunction with an optimal antitrombotic therapy as abciximab is now considered current standard therapy However, the incidence of stent restenosis in the setting of primary angioplasty remains particularly high, reaching a rate of 27%. A high restenosis rate causes a high re-hospitalization rate for target vessel revascularization and an ensuing increase in cost.In the last years the introduction of drug-eluting stents has drastically reduced the incidence of restenosis in patients not requiring urgent revascularization. This reduced incidence of restenosis occurs without an increase in adverse clinical events over conventional stents and has a very low rate of stent subacute thrombosis. Whether this combination of drug-eluting stents and abciximab might constitute the new optimal therapy for patients with an acute myocardial infarction is unknown. To be able to answer this question, we designed a one year coronary angiographic study in which patients with an acute myocardial infarction eligible for treatment with primary angioplasty and abciximab were randomized to receive either a rapamicine-eluting stent or a conventional bare stent.
