Another chapter in the story of thrombectomy in ST-elevation myocardial infarction: a story not yet finished.

Microvascular perfusion after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) has been clearly linked to mortality. It seems logical that by removing thrombus prior to PCI, thrombectomy could prevent distal embolization, improve microvascular perfusion and improve outcomes in STEMI. The early small randomized… CONTINUE READING
