Congratulations to the team at Colorado Heart & Vascular on being a top enrolling site in the STEMI DTU trial! 🏆
- STEMI Door To Unload Study (DTU)
- Colorado Heart and Vascular has partnered with St Anthony’s hospital since 2020 to participate in the DTU study. The purpose of this study is to determine how safe and effective unloading the left ventricle prior to reperfusion is. By doing so, it will reduce the size of infarct and heart failure related events. The results of the study may change our current practice for treatment of anterior ST elevation myocardial infarcts (STEMI). So far, St Anthony’s Hospital has enrolled twenty-seven patients making it the highest enrolling site in the country and the second highest enroller in the world.
