This randomized controlled trial evaluated routine mural thrombus aspiration followed by PCI to PCI alone in 7,244 pts with STEMI undergoing PCI.  Thrombus aspiration did not significantly decrease mortality, recurrent MI, or stent thrombosis. Stroke and neurologic complication rates were similar between the groups.
