Thrombus Aspiration in ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction in Scandinavia - TASTE


Current guidelines list thrombus aspiration as a Class IIa indication in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary PCI (PPCI). The current trial sought to investigate whether aspiration thrombectomy as an adjunct to primary PCI resulted in superior outcomes as compared with primary PCI alone in patients presenting with STEMI.
