EROSION II: OCT Guided PPCI in STEMI


Brief description of study

This protocol describes a perspective,multicenter study intended to test the hypothesis that patients with STEMI caused by plaque rupture or plaque erosion without obstructive stenosis (diameter stenosis <70%) can be stabilized by effective antithrombotic treatment without stent implantation, thereby avoiding both early and late complications related to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Patients with STEMI within 12 hours will be included for screening. Thrombus aspiration will be performed in patients with large thrombus burden and TIMI flow grade less than 2 to restore blood flow. OCT will be used to assess the underlying mechanism including plaque rupture, erosion, calcified nodule, and other uncommon reasons.
