Thrombus Aspiration in Myocardial Infarction

16:40 EST 18th December 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Treatment of myocardial infarction (blood clot in the arteries of the heart) has improved after introduction of 24/7 balloon angioplasty to open the blocked artery. However, the clot itself is not routinely removed but recent data in smaller trials indicate that this might improve recovery and prognosis. In this multicenter study of 5000 patients referred to Scandinavian hospitals for myocardial infarction the investigators test the hypothesis that patients randomized to treatment with thrombus aspiration (removing the blood clot by manual suction) before conventional angioplasty will have a reduced risk of death, fewer rehospitalisations, fewer new myocardial infarctions, reduced risk of heart failure, better coronary artery flow after angioplasty and greater reduction of infarct size compared to patients randomized to conventional angioplasty alone.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.

An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).

Coagulation of blood in any of the CORONARY VESSELS. The presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) often leads to MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.
