Principal Investigator

Aaron Kaplan

Study Number



This study is for people age 65 years or older with a certain type of heart attack called ST-Elevated Myocardial Infarction or STEMI.The study is designed to look at four ways to care for patients: 1. Examine the effectiveness of delivering drug-eluting stents through the wrist (radial primary heart stenting). 2. Evaluate the safety and benefit of stenting all blocked vessels and not just the problem vessel compared to the benefit of stenting just the problem vessel. Subjects are randomized 1:1 (like the flip of a coin). 3. Obtain data on the use of radial primary heart stenting (through the wrist) on people who are 65 or older. 4. Evaluate the safety of two different catheters (used to deliver the wire that holds the stent) and TR Band.
