    Association Between Proximal Stent Edge Positioning on Atherosclerotic Plaques Containing Lipid Pools and Postprocedural Myocardial Infarction (from the CLI-POOL Study)

    Postprocedural myocardial infarction is an ominous complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Despite several patient, lesion, and procedural factors that may affect its occurrence and severity, it is unclear if implanting a stent edge on a coronary lipid pool, as appraised by optical coherence tomography (OCT), adversely affects outcomes. The aim of this study was to assess the association between postprocedural myocardial infarction and the implantation of a stent edge on a lipid pool, as assessed by OCT. A database was screened for patients without ongoing myocardial infarctions; who underwent PCI with stenting for single, native, de novo lesions; without ...
