Benefits of Rescue PCI
Studies demonstrated that rescue PCI after failed fibrinolytic therapy is related to a lower risk of cardiovascular events when compared to repeated fibrinolytic therapy or conservative managements.
- However, rates of complications such as stroke and bleeding were higher in the rescue PCI group.
- On the other hand, the fact that those studies have been done in the era of femoral artery access and limited antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapies may explain the higher rates of stroke and bleeding.
- Half-dose tenecteplase in patients older than 75 years old reduces the risk of stroke.
- Furthermore, radial artery access instead of femoral artery or avoiding routine use of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors could be used to decrease the risk of bleeding.
