  • OBJECTIVES We aimed to compare clinical outcomes of octogenarians > or =80 years of age after coronary drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. BACKGROUND Although octogenarians constitute a fast-growing portion of cardiovascular patients, they are not adequately represented in current clinical revascularization trials.
