Current issues in PCI


The Stenting in Complex PCI meeting (2 December 2014, Milan, Italy) reviewed some of the most important issues in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) today. This included how PCI has developed since the SYNTAX (Synergy between PCI with Taxus and cardiac surgery) trial showed that the intervention was associated with a significantly higher rate of major adverse cardiac or cerebrovascular events than coronary artery bypass grafting at one year in patients with three-vessel or left main disease.
