Treatment of acute myocardial infarction due to embolism by a thromboaspiration catheter


, : Treatment of acute myocardial infarction due to embolism by a thromboaspiration catheter. Archives des Maladies du Coeur et des Vaisseaux 98(3): 263-266

Although rare, coronary embolism poses a therapeutic problem. Thromboaspiration is an elegant alternative to implantation of a stent. The place of stenting in acute myocardial infarction depends on the results of randomised trials. The authors report the case of a 69 year old woman who presented with an apico-lateral infarction probably due to a coronary embolism after postoperative thrombosis of a mechanical mitral valve prosthesis. The authors performed a percutaneous revascularisation by thromboaspiration with a good result.
