PMID:  14517917     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Distal embolization of plaque or thrombotic debris is one of the mechanisms involved in the ischemia/reperfusion injury during primary percutaneous intervention for acute occlusion of a native coronary artery. We tested the clinical application of maximal antiplatelet therapy with abciximab combined with one of two different systems of mechanical distal protection: balloon occlusion and aspiration (PercuSurge) in 24 cases and a distal filter (FilterWire Ex) in 10 cases. Feasibility, technical limitations, and pitfalls are described.
