The dominant cause of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is abrupt plaque rupture, erosion, or hemorrhage with secondary intravascular thrombosis, typically leading to coronary arterial occlusion and infarction of the downstream myocardium.(1) Contemporary evidence-based intervention strategies incorporating rapid administration of antiplatelet and antithrombotic medications and prompt revascularization with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) result in excellent survival rates and low morbidity at 30 days.(2)-(4) For patients undergoing primary PCI, the removal of an intravascular thrombus during the procedure with the use of dedicated extraction catheters is an intuitively attractive strategy and one that is simple to carry out.
