The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical, echocardiographic and angiographic outcome of distal protection in the infarct related coronary artery and implantation of drug eluting versus bare metal stents in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarctions treated acutely with percutaneous coronary intervention.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • ST segment resolution [ Time Frame: 90 min ]
  • Late loss (difference between minimal lumen diameter in stented segment immediately after and at 8 month follow up). [ Time Frame: immediately after and at 8 month follow up ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Restenosis [ Time Frame: 8 months ]
  • maximal elevations in blood concentrations of CK-MB enzyme and troponin-T [ Time Frame: Post procedure ]
  • wall motion index [ Time Frame: During hospitalisation: day 3-5 ]
  • Minimal lumen diameter [ Time Frame: 8 months ]
  • frequency of binary restenosis (>50% diameter stenosis), diameter stenosis (%) in the stented segment. [ Time Frame: 8 months ]
  • Occurrence of stent thrombosis and MACE. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 600
Study Start Date: May 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
