OBJECTIVES This multicenter registry aimed to assess the ClearWay™ (CW) perfusion catheter in reduction of thrombus burden and improvement of the coronary flow during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND The presence or development of thrombus during PCI is associated with poor prognosis. METHODS The utility of the CW perfusion catheter was assessed in patients who presented with intracoronary thrombus and were subjected to PCI. Data were collected by online survey from 15… CONTINUE READING
