AbstractBackground. Key insights into the role of platelets in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and unstable angina have led to the development of the polymer-coated stent, Camouflage®. Coating of stents is an elegant method to minimize interactions between platelets and the stent surface and the vascular response following stent implantation. Methods. This single-center prospective registry was performed to estimate the in-hospital, 30-day and 180-day event rate (death, revascularization, reinfarction and pathological stress test at 180 days) in an everyday patient population with AMI with immediate percutaneous coronary intervention. There were 44 males (65.7%) and 23 females (34.3%); 53 patients (79.1%) had hypertension, 11 (16.4%) were diabetic, and 32 (47.8%) had elevated LDL cholesterol. The mean age was 60.7 ± 11.6 years. Results. Sixtyseven patients with AMI (STEMI: 56.7%, NSTEMI: 43.3%) were included. Clinical data at the 30-day and 180-day follow up were avai.
