Abstract

The clinical and angiographic outcomes of 10 patients' who received abciximab as part of their therapy for early stent thrombosis was compared with 25 patients (using historical controls) who received conventional therapy. Although the angiographic outcome and the incidence of myocardial infarction in both groups was similar, there were no deaths or referral for emergency coronary bypass surgery in the abciximab-treated group versus 3 deaths and 10 referrals for emergency bypass surgery in the conventionally treated group.
