ABSTRACT
Introduction:
This study aims to compare the safety and efficacy of bivalirudin bridging enoxaparin versus fondaparinux in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) who were undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI).

Material and methods:
The study is a prospective, natural, and selective interventional trial based on real-world data for 482 AMI patients.

Results:
At the end of the follow-up, the two groups demonstrated similar major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) and bleeding rates. After propensity score matching (PSM), the fondaparinux group showed greater advantages in reducing MACCE and bleeding events.

Conclusions:
The anticoagulation strategy of bivalirudin bridging fonda­parinux seems to be superior to that of bivalirudin bridging enoxaparin in patients with AMI undergoing PPCI.
