Effect of Intravenous Metoprolol Combining RIPC on Myocardial Protection in STEMI Patients


Brief description of study

This study is aim to discover the difference of protective effect on comparing Metoprolol administration before cardiac reperfusion combined with remote ischemic post-conditioning (RIPC) in patients with anterior STEMI in China. This study sought to find possible strategy on ameliorate the patients with anterior STEMI in China through the mechanisms on cardiac protection before cardiac reperfusion.

Detailed Study Description

This study is a multicenter randomized controlled clinical trial, and planning to enroll 1200 patients with anterior STEMI. At the first medical contactpatients who meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria are divided into different groups before reperfusion. Patients randomize into placbo, Metoprolol, RIPC and Metorolol+RIPC groups. Subsequently, the investigator conduct diagnosis and treatment according to the patient's specific conditions. It is important to test early markers of myocardial damage at 12hrs, 24hrs, 36hrs, 48hrs and 60hrs(must item)during hospitalization. If the patient is treated with PCI, immediate post-operative myocardial injury markers are required(must item). Meanwhile, the investigator will collect information about disease diagnosis and treatment. All patients were followed for 1 year with an office visit at 1,3,6,9 and 12 months or a telephone call to evaluate the Health status and clinical events of patients.
