Adjunctive Devices for Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
Gaps in Knowledge
Direct comparative RCTs are needed that compare one thrombectomy or embolic protection device with another and evaluate final health outcomes. Studies examining final health outcomes and using longer followup data are needed to fully determine the impact of adjunctive thrombectomy and embolic protection devices in patients with ACS who are undergoing PCI.
