Abstract

The results of bail-out stenting after unsuccessful primary balloon angioplasty compared with routine stenting or successful balloon angioplasty in acute myocardial infarction are unknown. In the CADILLAC trial, 168 of 1,044 patients (16.1%) randomized to balloon angioplasty crossed over to stenting after unsuccessful dilatation. Event-free survival was similar after bail-out and routine stenting, and was greater than after successful balloon angioplasty.
