Abstract

Intracoronary stenting reduces restenosis rates and effectively treats abrupt vessel closure, two frequent complications following percutaneous coronary angioplasty (PTCA). But it has drawbacks, such as in-stent restenosis, high cost, and lack of long-term follow-up data. This paper discusses current indications and the future role of stenting.
