ADenosine Administration during and after Primary percutaneous coronary intervention in acute myocardial infarction Trial - ADAPT

Description:

Earlier small studies had demonstrated that intracoronary adenosine, due to its vasodilatory effect, is associated with improved myocardial perfusion in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Accordingly, current American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines for primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in STEMI recommend using adenosine 30-60 µg for the treatment of microvascular dysfunction. ADAPT sought to study the effect of high-dose in...
