Example text

ACE inhibitors were shown to decrease mortality in the SAVE trial, in which patients with left ventricular dysfunction (ejection fraction <40%) after MI had a 21% improvement in survival after treatment with the ACE inhibitor captopril [60]. A smaller but still significant reduction in mortality was seen when all patients were treated with captopril in the ISIS-4 study [45]. The mechanisms responsible for the benefits of ACE inhibitors probably include limitation in the progressive 32 2 Acute Coronary Syndromes left ventricular dysfunction and enlargement (remodeling) that often occur after infarction, but a reduction in ischemic events was seen as well.

Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Acute Myocardial Infarction The major advantages of primary PCI over thrombolytic therapy include a higher rate of normal (TIMI grade 3) flow, lower risk of intracranial hemorrhage and the ability to stratify risk based on the severity and distribution of coronary artery disease. Patients ineligible for fibrinolytic therapy should obviously be considered for primary PCI. In addition, data from several randomized trials have suggested that PCI is preferable to thrombolytic therapy for AMI patients at higher risk [17].

Bilvalirudin should not be administered alone, particularly if there is going to be a delay to angiography. Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa Antagonists The benefits of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors as adjunctive treatment in patients with ACS have been shown in several trials, with a relative risk reduction of 11% in NSTEMI by meta-analysis [33]. Additional analysis suggests that glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibition is most effective in high-risk patients, those with either ECG changes or elevated troponin [33].
