We aimed to investigate whether micro-net on stent could preserve the index of msicrocirculatory resistance (IMR) after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with acutemyocardial infarction (AMI).
Fifty deux patients with AMI were randomized into two groups: primary PCI with micro-net on stent (MGUARD group, n=25) and primary PCI with any commercially available (DES group, n=27). As the primary endpoint, IMR was measured immediately after primary PCI using a pressure-temperature sensor-tipped coronary wire. The secondary endpoint was the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) at six-month follow-up. The IMR in MGUARD group was significantly lower than in DES group (39.6±26.2 U vs. 75.4±60.5 U, P=0.01). No significant differences in baseline EF (56.2±10.3% vs. 54.9±7.73%, P=0.7), however, there were significant differences in follow-up EF (63.2±3.8% vs. 54.7±7.79%, P=0.001).
A micro-net on stent significantly improved CMVD compared with a traditional DES in primary PCI and appear as a useful technological option to manage the thrombus.
