Thrombus Aspiration in ThrOmbus containing culPriT lesions in Non-ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction - TATORT-NSTEMI


Current guidelines list thrombus aspiration as a Class IIa indication in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). It is unclear if aspiration thrombectomy would be useful in patients with non-STEMI (NSTEMI). The current trial sought to investigate whether aspiration thrombectomy as an adjunct to PCI was superior to standard PCI in patients presenting with NSTEMI and visible thrombus.
