Abstract

Patients on chronic hemodialysis undergoing percutaneous coronary revascularization have similar rates of procedural success and in-hospital event rates when compared with a matched cohort. However, patients on chronic hemodialysis have a marked increase in 36-month target vessel revascularization, myocardial infarction, and death rates.
