In patients with acute myocardial infarction who are managed in the prehospital setting, and who will treated with primary angioplasty, we evaluate the benefit of an early administration of tirofiban, a powerful GPIIbIIIa inhibitors. Patients are randomised to early administration in the ambulance or administration in the cathlab. The primary endpoint is TIMI 2-3 flow in the first coronary opacification of the culprit artery.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • TIMI 2-3 flow on first coronary artery opacification [ Time Frame: start of coronarography ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Protocol déviations of Tirofiban administration (no bolus, bolus decreasing or increasing of +/- 10% from expected value, dose perfusion decreasing or increasing of 1 ml/h from expected value, time perfusion > 24h or < 18h [ Time Frame: During tirofiban administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • TIMI 3, TIMI 2 and TIMI 1-0 flow frequency in responsible artery before and after angioplasty [ Time Frame: before and after angioplasty ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • left ventricular ejection fraction value [ Time Frame: during angioplasty ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • CPK and troponin values (before and after angioplasty, peak and 24h after angioplasty) [ Time Frame: during 24h after angioplasty ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • reduction of ST segment elevation (considered as resoluted if amplitude decreasing > 70%) [ Time Frame: after angioplasty ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Outcome of following Serious Adverse Events: anginal recurrence, infarct recurrence, urgent revascularization, serious heart failure and hospital mortality [ Time Frame: During hospitalization ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
