Simek). Received 15 January 2018; received in revised form 28 February 2018; accepted 4 March 2018 Keywords: Coronary artery occlusion � Percutaneous aspiration � Aortic valve replacement Figure 1: A 65-year-old woman presented with an anterior STEMI 1 h after the conventional aortic valve replacement with a 21-mm bioprosthesis (A), and she under- went percutaneous aspiration for non-opalescent occlusion of the proximal LAD (B–D). Some calcium debris was successfully removed by a thrombectomy aspiration device (D). Left ventricular saline lavage with coronary ostia protection did not completely prevent the embolization of debris loosened during annular debridement, even when only anterograde cardioplegia was administered.
