Summary and Concluding Remarks
PCI is the optimal reperfusion modality in patients with acute STEMI and its use has resulted in improved survival in patients with cardiovascular disease. However, PCI often results in suboptimal myocardial perfusion due to embolisation of thrombus and atheromateous debris, which results in increased infarct size and mortality. The MGuard micronet mesh-covered stent prevents from distal embolisation and achieves excellent myocardial flow and complete resolution of ST-elevation, even in complicated clinical cases. The clinical trials and registry studies have provided a substantial body of evidence supporting the use of MGuard in primary PCI, with the objective of improving patient outcomes. Following the introduction on MGuard, treatment of acute MI has reached a new level involving a simple device that can be used in daily practice in the catheterisation laboratory.
