Differed stenting in STEMI:05 years clinical outcomes

Primary angioplasty is the gold standard in the management of STEMI in the acute phase. However, due to the thrombotic burden this procedure can cause serious complications in cath-lab such as slow flow, no reflow and distal embolizations which can compromise myocardial reperfusion and microcirculation. In an attempt to reduce these complications, the differed stenting strategy was adopted by our center, with the primary objective: Assessing whether it is safe to postpone the implantation of a stent to an average time of 05 days (Occurrence of peri -procedural) and as a secondary objective: Occurrence of MACE after a follow-up of 05 years.
