Abstract

Primary angioplasty has been demonstrated to be the best reperfusion therapy in patients with acute myocardial infarction. Anyway, its efficacy is reduced by the distal embolization, above all in the setting of acute myocardial infarction. In the last years, many devices have been designed in order to limit this complication which may lead to a poor prognosis. This review will focus on the different devices of thrombectomy and distal protection, until now available in a cath lab.
