Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • ST segment resolution in ECG [ Time Frame: 3 hours post PCI procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • peak troponin T level [ Time Frame: in the 7 days post PCI procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • plasma N terminal-proBNP levels [ Time Frame: 1 and 30 days post PCI procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • infarction area confirmed by SPECT [ Time Frame: 30 days post PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • incidence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) defined as the composite of death, myocardial infarction and target vessel revascularization [ Time Frame: 30 days post PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • TIMI defined total major bleeding [ Time Frame: 30 days post PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
