    Intravascular Imaging Guidance Reduce 1-Year MACE in Patients Undergoing Rotablator Atherectomy-Assisted Drug-Eluting Stent Implantation

    Objectives: This study aimed to investigate the incidence of 1-year major adverse cardiac events (MACE) compared between intravascular imaging guidance and angiographic guidance in patients undergoing rotablator atherectomy (RA)-assisted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. Methods: This retrospective analysis included 265 consecutive patients with heavy calcified lesion who underwent RA-assisted PCI with DES implantation at our institution during the January 2016-December 2018 study period. This study was approved by the Siriraj Institutional Review Board. Patients were divided into either the angiographic guidance PCI group or the imaging guidance PCI group, which was defined as intravascular ultrasound ...
