Detailed Description:
This is a randomized, double-blinded study, where patients treated with thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction are randomized to receive bone-marrow derived stem cells or sham-infusion at the time percutaneous coronary intervention of the target vessel. The end-points are many arrhythmia risk variables, suchs as heart rate variability, T-wave alternans and many ECG variables as well as systolic and diastolic left ventricular function.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction treated with thrombolytic therapy

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Indication for rescue PCI, severe clinical heart failure, age <18 years
