Abstract We present the case of a 77 year-old male patient diagnosed with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction of anterior wall due to coronary embolism secondary to paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. The patient was qualified for emergent coronary angiography and aspiration thrombectomy. Due to lack of atherosclerotic lesions and probable embolic origin of the occlusion of the infarct-related artery, the patient underwent a successful thrombus aspiration procedure without stent implantation, followed by oral anticoagulant therapy.
