Abstract

To assess whether gender influences the results of coronary stenting, 158 consecutive women undergoing coronary stenting were compared with 823 consecutive men. Women had more adverse baseline characteristics, a higher hospital mortality, and were independently associated with procedural failure/complications (relative risk 2.4, 95% confidence interval 1.2 to 4.8); however, the long-term event-free survival and the restenosis rate were not influenced by gender.
