1. ClearWayRX System to reduce intracoronary thrombus in patients with acute coronary syndromes according to Optical Coherence Tomography after Abciximab Intracoronary Local infusion trial (COCTAIL): study rationale and design

    Background and objective: Prompt reperfusion with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in the setting of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) improves clinical outcomes through salvage of myocardial tissue. Although use of intracoronary glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibition with PCI can result in improved rates of normal epicardial flow and myocardial perfusion, several unmet needs remain. The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an intracoronary bolus of abciximab delivered using the ClearWayRX Therapeutic Perfusion Catheter followed by a dosing regimen of intravenous abciximab infusion after PCI, compared with intracoronary abciximab infusion, via the guiding catheter, followed by a ...
