Prediction of distal embolization during percutaneous coronary intervention in saphenous vein grafts.

Abstract:

Distal protection devices have been proved to decrease distal embolization and improve outcome in unselected patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in saphenous vein grafts (SVGs). However, it remains uncertain whether distal protection is necessary in all patients. We investigated whether clinical or angiographic variables can predict distal embolization and, hence, need for a distal protection device. Fifty-eight consecutive SVGs that underwent PCI with a FilterWire di...
