Abstract

ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) interventions have significantly reduced mortality and morbidity from acute myocardial infarction. Compulsive management of thrombus is a fundamental requirement of these interventions. A pragmatic thrombus-guided management strategy is reviewed along with additional novel therapeutic adjuncts for STEMI interventions.
