    PREcise Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for Stent OptimizatION in Treatment of COMPLEX Lesion (PRECISION-COMPLEX)

    There has been ample evidence of the role of intracoronary imaging for optimizing the stent, especially among the patients with complex coronary lesions. Intracoronary imaging can be used during the entire process of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), from pre-PCI to post-PCI stages. Notably, approximately 15-20% of patients who underwent angiographically successful PCI showed significant stent underexpansion, malapposition, intra-stent thrombus formation, and edge dissection on intracoronary imaging studies, including optical coherence tomography (OCT). Meanwhile, the role of pre-interventional fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurement has been well established and recommended by recent guideline. However, although previous studies evaluated the efficacy and safety ...
