Background Prompt reperfusion with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in the setting of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) improves clinical outcomes through salvage of myocardial tissue.
Although the use of thrombus aspiration with PCI can result in improved rates of normal epicardial flow and myocardial perfusion, several unmet needs remain.
Purpose The purpose of this trial will be to evaluate the hypothesis that local delivery of thrombolytics vs. saline infusion prior to thrombus aspiration and PCI is safe and effective in patients with STEMI.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Coronary Artery Disease||Drug: Urokinase Drug: Saline||Phase 4|
The study will select patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with angiographic evidence of massive thrombosis in the culprit artery undergoing manual thrombectomy followed by primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Patients will be randomized to receive local bolus of 200,000 units urokinase or saline solution
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||100 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Masking:||Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)|
