Successful recanalisation resulted in brisk flow (bottom right), and the 15 minute procedure completely resolved the patient’s chest pain Acute coronary syndrome: ST segment elevation myocardial infarction However, one study (Stent-PAMI) showed that stenting was associated with a small (but significant) decrease in normal coronary flow and a trend towards increased six and 12 month mortality. This led some to examine the use of adjunctive glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors as a solution. Stenting and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors The first study (CADILLAC) to examine the potential benefits of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors combined with stenting showed that abciximab significantly reduced early recurrent ischaemia and reocclusion due to thrombus formation.
