Efficacy of Thrombosuction in Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention of Acute Myocardial Infarction

2014-08-27 03:12:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The present study was designed to investigate whether the thrombus aspiration using Export Aspiration Catheter (Medtronic Corporation, California, USA) during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in acute myocardial infarction improve clinical outcomes.

Description

Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the preferred strategy for immediate revascularization in patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). A meta-analysis of trials comparing primary PCI to fibrinolytic therapy showed a mortality benefit to the invasive approach. However, although TIMI III flow is achieved in the culprit epicardial vessel in the majority of patients, lack of tissue-level reperfusion is observed in approximately 30% of patients as manifested by persistence of chest pain and ST-segment elevation. Many strategies have tried to overcome this problem, from mechanical thrombectomy and distal protection devices to myocardial preserving agents. The purpose of present study is to investigate the efficacy of the thrombus aspiration using Export Aspiration Catheter (Medtronic Corporation, California, USA) during primary PCI in acute myocardial infarction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A process involving chance used in therapeutic trials or other research endeavor for allocating experimental subjects, human or animal, between treatment and control groups, or among treatment groups. It may also apply to experiments on inanimate objects.

A type of lung inflammation resulting from the aspiration of food, liquid, or gastric contents into the upper RESPIRATORY TRACT.

A hindrance to the passage of fluids through a CATHETER.

Breathing in liquid or solids, such as stomach contents, into the RESPIRATORY TRACT. When this causes severe lung damage, it is called ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA.
