Abstract

Coronary stenting is effective in the management of acute coronary dissections after angioplasty. In this setting, small residual dissections are frequently seen but have a good outcome and disappear at follow-up. Large residual dissections may have a good outcome if coronary flow is not impaired and no residual stenosis is visualized.
