Occlusion of small side branch (SB) may result in significant adverse clinical events. We aim to characterize the predictors of small SB occlusion and incidence of periprocedural myocardial injury (PMI) in coronary bifurcation intervention.Nine hundred twenty-five consecutive patients with 949 bifurcation lesions (SB ≤ 2.0  mm) treated with percutaneous(More)
It is well known that atherosclerosis prevails in elderly populations as ageing acts as a recognized risk factor for this disease. Although the pathogenic factors leading to atherosclerosis are highly heterogeneous, traditionally speaking, the causative risk factors include hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and smoking, which can damage to(More)
BACKGROUND Despite its severity, coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is still poorly understood. High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) has been recognized as a prognostic factor in some cardiovascular diseases but not assessed in CAE. The aim of this observational study was to investigate the prognostic value of hs-CRP in CAE. METHODS Our analysis(More)
BACKGROUND Major side branch (SB) occlusion is one of the most serious complications during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for bifurcation lesions. We aimed to characterize the incidence and predictors of major SB occlusion during coronary bifurcation intervention. METHODS We selected consecutive patients undergoing PCI (using one stent or(More)
