Patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction type of heart attack
Study of Access Site for Enhancing PCI in STEMI for Seniors
This study enrolls older adults who may have a completely or partially blocked blood vessel(s) in their heart causing a type of heart attack known as a ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). This may need a medical procedure called “Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)” to open narrowed or blocked blood vessel(s). This is sometimes called an angioplasty or ‘balloon procedure’ often with stent placement at the same time. The purpose of this study is to learn about the safety and benefits of different types of treatment for this condition.
Please contact our team for more information about this study. Study takes place at Buffalo General Medical Center and Gates Vascular Institute in Buffalo, NY.
To simultaneously address four potential advances in STEMIcare for patients at least 60 years old.1. To examine the effectiveness of zotarolimus-elutingstents for radial Primary PCI in STEMI2. To evaluate the safety and benefit of iFR-guidedcomplete revascularization vs. infarct artery onlyrevascularization in Primary PCI of patients with multivesselCAD3. To obtain data on the real world application of radialaccess for Primary PCI in the public health focus on anelderly population.4. To evaluate the safety of the Terumo GlidesheathSlender and TR Band on an elderly population.
Adults ages 60+.
You have had a significant ST-elevation myocardial infarction or left bundle branch block (LBBB).
Your physician plans to perform trans-radial Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).
