Despite the usefulness of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the impact of IVUS guidance on clinical outcomes, particularly for chronic total occlusion (CTO) intervention, has rarely been studied. We sought to investigate the clinical usefulness of IVUS-guided CTO intervention with second-generation drug-eluting stent implantation. From 2007 to 2009, a total of 2,568 patients were enrolled in the Korean-CTO registry and 534 patients with successful… CONTINUE READING
