We prospectively assessed in 124 consecutive patients by means of 1-week and 6-month follow-up angiograms the rate of reocclusion and restenosis of coronary stenting with Palmaz-Schatz stents after occlusive and nonocclusive dissection during primary balloon angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Patients were further evaluated clinically at 1 year. Stenting was performed on large (>3.2 mm) coronary arteries for suboptimal results (47%), occlusive (8%), or nonocclusive dissections (45%) after balloon angioplasty. Stents were delivered using the bare stent technique and high pressure inflations (>12 atm). All patients received ticlopidine 250 mg (500 mg if weight was >80 kg) and aspirin 100 mg for 1 month. No patient received warfarin. At 1 week, 6 patients died of cardiogenic shock and 2 of right ventricular infarction. One subacute occlusion occurred at day 14. At 6 months, in 95 patients, the angiographic restenosis rate (>50% diameter stenosis) was 19%. One-year clinical follow-up, available in 55 patients, indicated cardiac death in 5, and repeat revascularization in 3. Thus, coronary stenting on large (>3.2 mm) coronary arteries after occlusive and nonocclusive dissection during primary balloon angioplasty for AMI using bare Palmaz-Schatz stents, high pressures, ticlopidine, and aspirin is safe. Our reocclusion and restenosis rates are similar to those of trials on elective stenting in stable patients.
