Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the short- and mid-term clinical impact of intravascular ultrasound guidance in 58 patients referred for elective percutaneous treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery disease with drug-eluting stents. The use of intravascular ultrasound, used in 41% of the procedures, was not associated with additional clinical benefit with respect to angiographic-assisted stent deployment.
