AIMS: To describe the characteristics and outcomes of patients receiving bailout glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors (GPI) for thrombotic complications of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in a large, contemporary trial.METHODS AND RESULTS: In the CHAMPION PHOENIX trial, the use of GPI was restricted to bailout for thrombotic complications. We describe the characteristics and outcomes of patients requiring bailout GPI compared to patients not receiving GPIs, with adjustment through propensity-score. A multivariable model was constructed to identify independent correlates associated with bailout GPI use. A total of 380 out of 10,942 patients received GPI (3.5%); GPI patients were younger, more frequently male, more likely to present with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction and less frequently treated with cangrelor. At 48?h, GPI patients experienced higher rates of the primary composite outcome of death, myocardial infarction, ischemia-driven revascularization, or stent thrombosis (ST) (19.2% vs 4.8%; adjusted OR: 5.65(4.08, 7.82), p?
