OBJECTIVES We sought to identify correlates of 30-day adverse events among patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of saphenous vein grafts (SVG). BACKGROUND Although the use of distal embolic protection devices during SVG intervention reduces major adverse cardiac events (MACE), many patients still experience MACE despite distal embolic protection, and the major predictors of MACE among these patients are not well-characterized. METHODS Correlates of 30-day MACE and… CONTINUE READING
