Complex PCI: Complex Characteristics Impact Results

Patients with a bigger number of complex anatomical characteristics that increase PCI complexity have worse results at one-year followup. These data come from a large multicenter study (e-Ultimaster) recently published in EuroIntervention. The more complex the characteristics, the greater the increase in events.  It is important to see past the obvious anatomical challenges (bifurcations, calcification,

A new strategy consists in conducting an IVUS after
