The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether beta-blocker therapy improves 3-year clinical outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction after primary percutaneous coronary intervention.
Beta-blocker therapy is recommended after ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) in the current guidelines although its efficacy in those patients who have undergone primary primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has not been adequately evaluated. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether beta-blocker, carvedilol improves 3-year clinical outcomes in patients with STEMI and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction after primary PCI. The design of this study is multicenter, open-label, randomized controlled trial enrolling 7600 patients without any exclusion criteria.

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
A myocardial infarction that does not produce elevations in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. ST segment elevation of the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.
Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
