Patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction type of heart attack
Protocol: STUDY00004597
Full Title
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.
