Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has greatly improved outcomes in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and has, therefore, become the preferred reperfusion strategy for this patient group. The goal of primary PCI is to achieve a thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) 3 flow and also to restore adequate perfusion at the myocardial level. Distal thrombus embolization during primary PCI occurs frequently and is also associated with compromised long-term outcomes. In this article, we provide an overview of the treatment of thrombus and the role of thrombectomy in PCI for STEMI.
