Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Procedural and Clinical success [ Time Frame: Patients will be followed for the duration of hospital stay (4-8 days) ]

    Procedural success: The deployment of BVS at the intended target lesion with a final residual stenosis ≤20% and a TIMI 2-3 coronary flow by visual estimation without major periprocedural complication (death, emergent CABG, coronary perforation, flow limiting coronary dissection).

    Clinical success: any major in-hospital events (deaths, reinfarction, urgent revascularization, stroke, major bleedings)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The MACE [ Time Frame: six months ]
    cumulative incidence of cardiac death, non fatal myocardial infarction and target lesion revascularization

Other Outcome Measures:
  • stent thrombosis [ Time Frame: six months ]
    cumulative incidence of definite or probable stent thrombosis defined according to the Academic Research Consortium definition

Enrollment: 100

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold
Implantation of of an everolimus eluting bioresorbable scaffold in patients with STEMI treated with primary PCI
Device: Bioresorbable vascular scaffold
stenting of an acute thrombotic lesion in patient within STEMI
Other Name: BVS, ABSORB (Abbot Vascular)
Active Comparator: Everolimus Eluting stent
Implantation of of an everolimus eluting stent in patients with STEMI treated with primary PCI
Device: Everolimus eluting stent
stenting of an acute thrombotic lesion in patient within STEMI
Other Name: Xience Prime (Abbott Vascular)

Detailed Description:
Background. Drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation may offer benefits in terms of repeat revascularization in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The everolimus eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) has shown efficacy and safety in stable patient but not in acute coronary syndromes. The study tested the feasibility and safety of BVS in patient treated with primary PCI (pPCI) Methods. Consecutive STEMI patients admitted within 12 hours of symptom onset and undergoing primary angioplasty and stent implantation at a tertiary center with 24-hour primary PCI capability will be randomly assigned to everolimus eluting stent (EES) or BVS. Primary endpoints are procedural and clinical success. The MACE (cardiac death, non fatal myocardial infarction, target lesion revascularization (TLR)) and definite or probable ST will be evaluated at six months.
