A Practical Approach to Assessing Stent Results with IVUS or OCT



Coronary angiography is routinely used to assess the extent and severity of coronary artery disease and for decision-making during percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). However, it is sometimes inadequate for deciding a strategy and defining optimal stenting outcomes. In this review, we present a comprehensive and practical approach to PCI using intravascular ultrasound or optical coherence tomography to optimize stent deployment and assess procedural complications after stent implantation.
