A large thrombus load on the culprit coronary artery of patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) is associated with increased procedural complications and adverse coronary events following angioplasty. This case series describes effective removal of large, occlusive thrombi in acute MI via direct aspiration using a standard 6 Fr guide catheter, following failed conventional catheter aspiration. This procedure is a simple and rapid alternative for challenging thrombi-containing coronary lesions when current thrombectomy catheters fail.
