In-stent restenosis and stent thrombosis definitely significantly affect the PCI outcome. However, review of recent relevant studies suggests that stent-related problems may have been somewhat overestimated when compared to coronary artery disease (CAD) progression at nonstented coronary segments as causative factors of adverse cardiac clinical events… CONTINUE READING
