Should Integrilin be an Integral Part of Adjunctive Therapy in Patients Undergoing Primary PCI for ST-Elevation MI?
The aim of this observational study is to evaluate the in hospital and 6 month outcomes of the use of Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor eptifibatide as adjunctive therapy in patients undergoing primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for ST-elevation myocardial infarction in a large tertiary referral center.
It is hypothesized that Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor use during primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for ST-elevation myocardial infarction/ acute myocardial infarction is superior to unfractionated heparin alone or bivalirudin alone. Additionally, after propensity matching this superiority remains.

Eptifibatide Pre PCI
Receive eptifibatide pre PCI
Eptifibatide during PCI
Receive eptifibatide during PCI
Receive no eptifibatide
This is a retrospective, observational, data analysis of approximately 800 patients who underwent primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention at our institution since September 2000. Patients will have either received eptifibatide pre-or during Percutaneous Coronary Intervention or have received no eptifibatide. Patients who received a thrombolytic prior to Percutaneous Coronary Intervention will be excluded.
This analysis is estimated to take 1-2 months.
