Abstract

Saphenous vein graft (SVG) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) constitutes approximately 6.0 % of all PCI in the United States and has two major limitations: (1) high risk for distal embolization often causing periprocedural myocardial infarction (MI); and (2) high rates of in-stent restenosis (ISR). In this chapter we review the frequency, prevention, and management of SVG ISR.
