Safety of lone thrombus aspiration without concomitant coronary stenting in selected patients with acute myocardial infarction.

EuroIntervention. 2013 Feb;8(10):1149-56, PMID: 23425541

Although the benefit of concomitant thrombus aspiration (TA) in primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) treatment of acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) has been demonstrated, very little information is available on its safety as a lone revascularisation technique in this setting. We present our experience in a cohort of patients with STEMI treated only with TA, without concomitant interventional devices.
