    Intravascular Imaging to Guide Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Will Be Mandatory Soon

    Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) or optical coherence tomography provides superior information to coronary angiography, including cross-sectional true vessel size, amount of calcification, distribution of plaque to inform stent landing zone, stent expansion, and stent edge dissection or uncovered disease, which have been well known as key metrics in percutaneous coronary intervention avoiding future stent failure. 1 Complex lesion morphology is typically defined as an unprotected left main lesion, severely calcified lesion, long lesion, bifurcation lesion, chronic total occlusion, or in-stent restenosis in which optimal percutaneous coronary intervention is far more difficult than other lesions. 2-4 Thus, they have a greater chance ...
