Study of Deferred Versus Immediate Stenting in Acute STEMI Conventional Treatment With Immediate Stenting - DEFER-STEMI

Description:

Given the high thrombus burden in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), there is a high incidence of no/slow-reflow due to distal embolization, microvascular spasm, and thrombosis. Recently, there has been interest in exploring the role of deferred percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) following restoration of infarct-related artery (IRA) patency in these patients. The current trial sought to compare outcomes following deferred PCI versus immediate PCI (conventiona...
