BACKGROUND The long-term safety and efficacy of drug eluting stents (DES) implanted during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is unclear. The purpose of this study was to compare the long-term outcome of STEMI patients undergoing primary PCI with DES vs. bare metal stent (BMS) implantation. METHODS In the present analysis 4764 patients were enrolled (706, 15%, received DES). We assessed the cumulative incidence of major… CONTINUE READING
