Comparative Effectiveness of Adjunctive Catheter Aspiration Thrombectomy Devices Versus PCI Alone in Patients With ACS

Catheter Aspiration Devices in Patients With STEMI:

Eleven RCTs evaluated the impact of catheter aspiration devices versus a control on mortality using the maximal duration of followup. One trial was excluded from the pooled analysis of relative risk because no events occurred in either group during the prespecified time period.

Catheter Aspiration Devices in Other ACS Populations:

One RCT evaluated the impact of the catheter aspiration device RescueTM PT versus a control on mortality in patients with acute MI.
