Is coronary stent deployment and remodeling affected by predilatation? An intravascular ultrasound randomized study


In this intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) randomized trial we compared a strategy of direct stenting (DS) without predilation (n = 30) vs. conventional stenting with predilation (SWP) (n = 30) in patients with suitable type A or B non-calcified lesions in native vessels ≥3 mm. Optimal deployment was achieved using angiographic criteria without interactive… (More)
