Early Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) After Fibrinolysis Versus Standard Therapy in ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) Patients
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
Several recent trials (1,2) suggest that all STEMI patients receiving fibrinolysis in non-PCI centres should be routinely transferred for elective early PCI within 24 hours from hospitalization, with no additive risk of major bleeding complications or other severe adverse events compared standard therapy. These results in favour of a routine invasive strategy in STEMI patients suggest a potential change to the current approach of awaiting the response to treatment in patients receiving fibrinolysis, and draw the attention to the potential need for an appropriate network organization with adequate first hospitalization treatment (spoke) and prompt transfer to centres with 24/7 PCI capabilities (hub). The recent ESC (3) and ACC (4) guidelines on STEMI are consistent with the early ESC PCI Guidelines, recommending that angioplasty after fibrinolysis should be performed within a time-window ranging between 3 and 24 hours after successful lytic administration (level evidence IIA). The reason for the weighting of the recommendation is due to the heterogeneity of trial results with different planned-revascularization strategies, variable primary end-points definitions, and small individual trial sample sizes. Therefore, a consistent analysis of single patient dataset from all published randomized trials would be of value to better define the magnitude and duration of clinical benefit of the routine invasive strategy after lytic treatment as well as the potential optimal timing of such a strategy.
The main aim of the OTTER meta-analysis is to define the benefits of immediate PCI after fibrinolysis for STEMI patients. Moreover, the OTTER meta-analysis will investigate the optimal timing of post-fibrinolysis elective revascularization.
