Abstract

Manual thrombus aspiration improves the efficacy of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) in ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI). The transradial approach (TRA) is an emerging vascular approach for PCI but is associated with specific technical requirements. As data on the combination of thrombus aspiration and TRA are scarce, we sought to assess the feasibility of TRA manual thrombus aspiration in STEMI patients.
