    Incidence and clinical impact of thrombus after stent implantation in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: an optical coherence tomography study

    Background: We previously reported that ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients with large residual thrombus burden after thrombectomy before stent implantation had more severe microvascular dysfunction, and greater myocardial damage compared with those with small residual thrombus. However, clinical significance of residual thrombus after stent implantation in STEMI patients is unclear. Aims: This study aimed to evaluate the incidence of thrombus by optical coherence tomography (OCT) after stent implantation, and to investigate its clinical impact in STEMI patients. Methods and Results: A total of 180 STEMI patients within 12 hours after onset of symptoms were studied. Patients were divided into ...
