Abstract
Intracoronary near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) has demonstrated substantial lipid in STEMI culprit plaques. Thrombus aspiration during primary PCI reduces distal embolization and improves reperfusion. This study was performed to examine if aspiration thrombectomy reduces the lipid content of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) culprit plaques.
