Facilitated percutaneous coronary intervention versus primary percutaneous coronary intervention: design and rationale of the Facilitated Intervention with Enhanced Reperfusion Speed to Stop Events (FINESSE) trial.

Am. Heart J.. 2004 Apr;147(4):E16, PMID: 15077099

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has emerged as the strategy of choice in reestablishing effective flow in occluded infarct-related arteries in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) if it can be administered in a timely fashion. Patients who enter the catheterization laboratory with Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) grade 3 blood flow in the infarct-related vessel have better clinical outcomes than patients presenting with impaired flow. We hypothesize that a strategy of early pharmacologic reperfusion therapy with abciximab alone or in conjunction with reduced-dose reteplase, followed by PCI will improve the outcome of patients eligible for primary PCI.
