We describe the value of mechanical rheolysis as an adjunct to rescue angioplasty and platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa receptor inhibition in a patient with acute myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock in whom the severity of the intracoronary thrombus burden precluded restoration of antegrade coronary flow by conventional balloon angioplasty and stenting.
