abstract

  • We compared the effectiveness of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and directional coronary atherectomy for the management of bifurcation coronary lesions in 1,012 patients enrolled in the Coronary Angioplasty Versus Excisional Atherectomy Trial-I. Directional coronary atherectomy was associated with less angiographic residual stenosis, but with a higher rate of side-branch closure and non-Q-wave myocardial infarction.
