OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of reducing stent length on the rate of target lesion restenosis. DESIGN In a prospective investigation, acute and long term results of a short stenting procedure were analysed by quantitative angiography and compared with results of a conventional stenting procedure selected according to a matched pairs analysis.

Stent length predicts restenosis. The feasibility of using a short stent (<10 mm) routinely was investigated in 331 consecutive patients treated for 424 coronary artery lesions. A single short stent provided suitable coverage and achieved a residual stenosis <30%, with or without predilatation, in 252/424 lesions (59.4%). Longer stents were implanted in(More)
BACKGROUND Stent length serves as a predictor of restenosis in use of bare metal stents (BMS). This has been demonstrated in a feasibility study that used a single short BMS implant (<9 mm) in a high proportion of lesions; the study observed a low rate of restenosis. METHODS We performed a pilot prospective study to investigate in a series of consecutive(More)
