abstract

  • Stroke is 1 of the most devastating complications associated with percutaneous coronary intervention. The present study used the combined 2000 to 2001 New York State Angioplasty Registry to compare the clinical characteristics and in-hospital outcomes of patients with and without stroke after percutaneous coronary intervention. Of the 76,903 patients who underwent angioplasty, 140 (0.18%) experienced stroke. Multivariate regression analysis revealed age, glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor use, acute myocardial infarction or congestive heart failure on admission, history of carotid disease, chronic renal disease, and placement of an intra-aortic balloon pump as independent predictors for stroke complicating percutaneous coronary intervention.
