Further study details as provided by Thomas Engstrom, Rigshospitalet, Denmark:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • All cause mortality, heart failure (postconditioning) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Infarct size in relation to area at risk as determined by MRI after 3 month [ Time Frame: 3 month ]
    Infarct size Salvage index

  • All cause mortality, myocardial infarction, repeat revascularisation and occurrence of definite stent thrombosis according to ARC definition within 1 year (deferred stent strategy) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • TIMI flow [ Time Frame: postprocedure ]
  • ST-segment resolution [ Time Frame: 90 min postprocedure ]
  • Wall motion index (echo) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • LVEF (MRI) [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
  • Infarct size (MRI) [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
  • Microvascular obstruction (MVO) [ Time Frame: within 48 hours ]
  • Quality of life [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 2000
Study Start Date: April 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2021
Primary Completion Date: February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Conventional treatment.
