Background:Stent underexpansion remains a concern as a cause of drug-eluting stent (DES) failure. Although coronary calcification is considered to be a contributing factor in stent underexpansion, previous intravascular ultrasound studies have failed to demonstrate this relationship. We investigated whether stent expansion could be predicted by coronary calcification as assessed by ...
