Abstract

The use of single coronary long (> or =25 mm) versus short (<20 mm) stents is associated with: 1) somewhat increased major procedural complications, 2) significantly higher frequency of periprocedural non-Q-wave MIs, and 3) equivalent repeat revascularization risk and cardiac event-free survival out-of-hospital up to one year.
