“Adjunctive, Low-dose tPA in Primary PCI for STEMI”
STRIVE will evaluate the use of adjunctive, low-dose intracoronary tissue plasminogen activator during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in reducing the incidence of post-procedural myocardial blush (MBG) grade 0/1 or distal embolization.
Drug - tissue plasminogen activator
Recombinant tPA is a fibrin-specific 2nd generation plasminogen activator and thrombolytic drug.
