Adjunctive Devices for Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
CER on Adjunctive Devices for Patients With ACS Undergoing PCI of Native Vessels
A systematic review of 175 clinical studies published between January 1996 and March 2011 sought to determine the effectiveness, benefits, and adverse effects of adjunctive devices to remove thrombi or protect against embolization in patients with ACSs undergoing PCI of native vessels when compared with PCI alone.
