    A novel experimental thrombotic myocardial infarction and primary angioplasty model in atherosclerotic swine

    We sought to develop a reproducible, percutaneous basic science and translational animal model for the generation of thrombotic occlusion acute myocardial infarction in adult atherosclerotic pigs. A vascular coil COOK TORNADO ® 38 inches (3–3.5 × 20–50 mm) was placed in the right coronary artery or the left anterior descending artery in 26 downsized spontaneously hypercholesterolemic pigs and left untreated until a thrombotic intracoronary occlusion was present. After the angiographic confirmation of total occlusion, we proceeded to crossing the newly formed thrombotic occlusion with a guidewire, followed by pre-dilatation with a semi compliant balloon, thrombus visualization with Optical Coherence ...
