Plaque rupture and subsequent thrombus formation inside the coronary arteries has been known for years. Mechanical devices have been used for the extraction or dissolution of thrombus inside the coronary arteries. This report illustrates the use of the Rescue Percutaneous Thrombectomy Catheter in a right coronary artery loaded with thrombus. Following thrombectomy, the stenosis in the artery was well delineated. Successful balloon angioplasty was performed, which resulted in TIMI 3 flow and no distal embolization. Rescue Percutaneous Thrombectomy Catheter has been successfully used in the setting of acute myocardial infarction. The present case illustrates that the Rescue Percutaneous Thrombectomy Catheter can be used for removing thrombus even one month after acute myocardial infarction.
