To evaluate the use of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in elderly coronary artery disease (CAD) patients. 

Age‐Related Differences in the Utilization of Therapies Post Acute Myocardial Infarction

The effect of age on the care of patients hospitalized with acute myocardial infarction is described and the importance of age in the care is described.

In‐hospital mortality and readmission after ST‐elevation myocardial infarction in nonagenarians: A nationwide analysis from the United States

To assess readmission rates in nonagenarians with ST‐elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) following primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) versus no pPCI, a large number of patients were referred to the hospital for follow-up care.

Benefits on coronary restenosis from elective paclitaxel-eluting stent implantation in patients aged 75 years and older

After elective paclitaxel-eluting stent implantation, there is no difference in coronary restenosis in younger and elderly patients, suggesting an age-independent efficacy.

Coronary Revascularization after Myocardial Infarction in the Very Elderly: Outcomes and Long-Term Follow-up

The hypothesis that, after adjusting for clinical, demographic, hemodynamic, and anatomic variables, coronary revascularization is not significantly associated with improved survival in patients 80 years and older who are hospitalized for an acute myocardial infarction is tested.

The very elderly should not be refused PCI on the basis of advanced age alone, and on multivariate analysis, age ≥ 85 years was not an independent predictor of in‐hospital mortality.

PTCA with the use of cardiac assist devices: risk stratification, short- and long-term results.

PTCA with the use of a cardiac assist device shows favorable short-term results in a subset of patients with extended coronary artery disease and severely impaired LV function who are not suitable for nonsupported PTCA or CABG due to their risk profile.

PTCA in the elderly: results and expectations.

It is concluded that PTCA may be the procedure of choice for symptomatic single discrete stenosis in the elderly patient and is an excellent and safe alternative mode of revascularization in selected elderly patients.

CABG in the elderly: the Glasgow experience.

The elderly group had a higher prevalence of females, pre-operative unstable angina, left main coronary artery disease and depressed left ventricular function, and angina was abolished or improved in 93% of the elderly patients at follow-up.
