Bivalirudin in Late PCI for Oatients With STEMI

2019-12-10 01:21:21 | BioPortfolio


Bivalirudin is recomended by guidelines during primary PCI procedure for patients with STEMI. However, there is a large number of STEMI patients who missed the primary PCI. So the investigators aim to study the efficiency and safety of bivalirudin as the anticoagulation therapy during late PCI.


Antithrombotic therapy is essential to prevent adverse ischemic events, especially stent thrombosis and reinfarction during and after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Bivalirudin is emerging as an alternative for heparin during PCI procedure1.

Bivalirudin (BIV) a synthetic, bivalent, 20-amino acid direct thrombin inhibitor, was found to have the advantages of inhibiting fibrin-bound thrombin, a predictable effect of anticoagulation, and a short half-life of approximately 30 minutes in humans with normal renal function. BIV has been introduced in percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) especially for patients with ACS. Compared with heparin, series clinical trials indicated that BIV was not inferior to UFH as a procedural anticoagulant and there was no increased bleeding.

In the real world, there are as many as 47.1% patients with STEMI can not get early reperfusion therapy. Huge number of patients missed the best time window for PCI. For these patients, the usual PCI procedure are usually performed 1-2 weeks after attack, which is called late PCI.

For patients with STEMI, Bivalirudin is recomended by guidelines in ESC during PCI procedure. However, the evidences (ACUITY,HORIZONS-AMI,EUROMAX, EAT-PPCI,BRIGHT, VALIDATE-SWEDEHEART) supporting the guideline nearly all comes from primary PCI for STEMI, which means there has no clinical trials focus on late PCI for patients with STEMI yet.

Clinically, late PCI, defined as the time to open an infarct‐related artery (IRA) from symptoms onset > 7 days (when the myocardial condition is considered stable), is practiced commonly for these late presenters. Whether late PCI is adequately beneficial is controversial. Currently, heparin is applied during late PCI as the anticoagulation therapy, it is still unknown of the efficiency and safety for bivalirudin as the anticoagulation therapy during late PCI.

So in this RCTs, the investigators aim to study the efficiency and safety of bivalirudin as the anticoagulation therapy during late PCI.

A heparin fraction with a mean molecular weight of 4500 daltons. It is isolated from porcine mucosal heparin and used as an antithrombotic agent. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)

Heparin fractions with a molecular weight usually between 4000 and 6000 kD. These low-molecular-weight fractions are effective antithrombotic agents. Their administration reduces the risk of hemorrhage, they have a longer half-life, and their platelet interactions are reduced in comparison to unfractionated heparin. They also provide an effective prophylaxis against postoperative major pulmonary embolism.
