BACKGROUND Women have higher mortality rates than men after coronary angioplasty. Differences in target vessel size may partially account for these differences. We set out to explore the effects of sex, body surface area (BSA), and target coronary vessel size on clinical outcomes after angioplasty. METHODS Data from 5 interventional trials and 1 registry… CONTINUE READING
