OBJECTIVES Our purpose was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of drug-eluting stents in the setting of primary percutaneous coronary intervention for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). BACKGROUND There is inconsistent and limited evidence about the efficacy and safety of drug-eluting stents in STEMI patients. METHODS A single-blind, single-center, randomized study was performed to compare bare-metal stents (BMS) with sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) in 310 STEMI patients… CONTINUE READING
