Local Thrombolytics Before Thrombectomy in STEMI (DISSOLUTION)
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.
