Prognostic impact of lipid contents on the target lesion in patients with drug eluting stent implantation


We sought to determine the morphologic predictors of major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) after successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DES), using integrated backscatter intravascular ultrasound (IB-IVUS). Conventional IVUS and IB-IVUS were performed in 260 consecutive patients who underwent PCI with DES. Three… (More)
