BACKGROUND The placement of stents in coronary arteries has been shown to reduce restenosis in comparison to balloon angioplasty. However, clinical use of intracoronary stents is impeded by the risk of subacute stent thrombosis and complications associated with the anticoagulant regimen. To reduce these complications, the hypothesis that systemic anticoagulation is not necessary when adequate stent expansion is achieved was prospectively evaluated on a consecutive series of patients who… CONTINUE READING
