Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) now outnumbers CABG (coronary artery bypass grafting) by more than 3:1 for the treatment of coronary heart disease. In this article, we discuss the current challenges faced by interventional cardiologists including restenosis and its treatment options and potential therapies for the future. The impact of stent geometry on restenosis and strategies to deal with challenging lesions such as bifurcations and lesions in the left main stem are also discussed.
