Core Tip Intracoronary thrombosis, is the basic pathophysiologic event in acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), and thrombi are very frequently detected in STEMI patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). Thrombus burden and components are important determinants of prognosis in STEMI, being well-known risk factors for long-term adverse cardiovascular events, distal embolization and stent thrombosis. As a result, percutaneous management of lesions with a consistent thrombotic burden is still challenging in the setting of PPCI for STEMI. Therefore, several pharmacological and interventional strategies, such as thrombectomy have been developed in order to improve PPCI’s safety and efficacy, by reducing thrombus burden.
