Further study details as provided by Datascope Corp.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine whether IABC before mechanical reperfusion decreases myocardial infarct (MI) size. [ Time Frame: 3-5 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the effect of IABC before mechanical reperfusion on post PCI cardiovascular function and major adverse cardiac events (MACE) (ie, death, reinfarction, and CHF) at 30 days and 6 months. [ Time Frame: 30 days and 6 months post randomization ]

Enrollment: 339
Study Start Date: December 2008
Study Completion Date: March 2011
Primary Completion Date: March 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: Control arm of study Device: Counterpulsation with IAB
IABC pre-reperfusion PCI
Other Name: CS100 & CS300 IAB Linear 7.5F Fidelity 8.0 F Sensation 7.0 F

Detailed Description:
Post clearance device study in which subjects with acute MI will be randomized 1:1 to either receive IAB or to receive standard of care without IAB before mechanical reperfusion. Subjects will be followed throughout their hospital stay and at 30 days.
