Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The combined endpoint of 90-day all cause morality, cardiac death, recurrent MI, recurrent symptomatic myocardiac ischemia, target vessel revascularization [ Time Frame: 2009 Dec- 2011 Mar ]

Estimated Enrollment: 500
Study Start Date: December 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: usual care Drug: atorvastatin
No loading dose of statin after enrollment, emergency PCI, atorvastatin 20mg/d and other usual medication after PCI
Other Name: Lipitor
Experimental: intensive statin treatment Drug: atorvastatin
80mg atorvastatin immediately after enrollment, emergency PCI,atorvastatin 40mg/d and other usual medication after PCI
Other Name: Lipitor

Detailed Description:

ARMYDA-ACS, ARMYDA-RECAPTURE and NAPLES II demonstrated that in patients with ASP and NSTE ACS undergoing early PCI, loading dose of atorvastatin before early PCI led to a reduction of prei-PCI MI, recurrent CV events and mortality. While, theses studies included patients with non-ST-segment elevation ACS, requiring PCI; these results cannot be extrapolated directly to patients with ST-segment elevation MI, and these trials included patients sent to an early and selective PCI, but not those undergoing emergency revascularization;

This study is designed to find out whether STEMI patients undergoing emergency PCI can benefit from intensive atorvastatin treatment compared with routine treatment.
