Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Percent of Myocardial Infarction Size to the Fraction of Left Ventricular Size [ Time Frame: 48-72 hours ]
    The primary endpoint - mean percent of the myocardial infarction size to the fraction of left ventricular size at 48-72 hours was measured by contrast-enhanced cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • MI Size at 48-72 Hours [ Time Frame: 48-72 hours ]
  • MI Size Normalized to Area at Risk [ Time Frame: 48-72 hours ]
  • Myocardial Perfusion at Coronary Angiography [ Time Frame: at completion of PCI ]
  • Infarct Transmurality [ Time Frame: 48-72 hours and 4 months ]
  • Global & Regional LV Function and LV Mass [ Time Frame: 48-72 hours and 4 months ]
  • Change in Global LV Function and Mass [ Time Frame: between 48-72 hours and 4 months ]
  • MI Size as a Fraction of LV Size [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
  • Resolution of ST Segment Elevation Compared With That Observed at Enrollment [ Time Frame: 4 hours ]
  • Troponin T Levels and CPK-MB Area Under the Curve [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
  • Change in Adverse Remodeling Parameters Compared With 48-72 Hrs: Changes in LV End-diastolic Vol, End-systolic Vol, End-diastolic Myocardial Wall Thickness in Infarct, Peri-infarct and Remote Areas, and in Sphericity Index at End-diastole and End-systole [ Time Frame: 4 months ]

Active Comparator: NO Drug: nitric oxide for inhalation
MI size at 48-72 hours
Other Name: INOmax®

Detailed Description:

The purpose of the trial is to assess whether or not inhaled nitric oxide can decrease myocardial infarction (MI) size as a fraction of left ventricular (LV) size at 48-72 hours in patients presenting with an ST segment elevation MI who undergo successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

The primary endpoint for this study will be myocardial infarction size as a fraction of left ventricular size at 48-72 hours as measured by contrast-enhanced cardiac MRI.
