ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction clinical trials at UC Health

2 research studies open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • ILUMIEN IV: A Study of OPtical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Guided Coronary Stent IMplantation (OPTIMAL PCI)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The objective of this clinical investigation is to demonstrate the superiority of an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)-guided stent implantation strategy as compared to an angiography-guided stent implantation strategy in achieving larger post-PCI lumen dimensions and improving clinical cardiovascular outcomes in patients with high-risk clinical characteristics and/or with high-risk angiographic lesions.

  • National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study evaluates the use of early mechanical circulatory support in patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock. Patients are treated according to the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative protocol, which emphasizes early identification of cardiogenic shock and rapid delivery of mechanical circulatory support based on invasive hemodynamics. All patients treated in this manner are enrolled in the National Cardiogenic Shock registry.
