Assessment of Efficacity of Coronary Thromboaspiration (Export System) Performed Before Angioplasty on Infarct Size in Patients Treated by Coronary Percutaneous Interventions During Acute Phase.
Patients scheduled for emergency angioplasty in the acute phase of a first ST-elevation
myocardial infarction will be treated either by thromboaspiration followed by angioplasty or
by angioplasty alone. The infarct size and severity will be assessed by ce-MRI and rest
Tc99m-mibi gated SPECT performed during initial hospital stay (5th-8th day). A control MRI
will be performed at 6-month follow-up to analyse the evolution of left ventricular volumes.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment
