    Comparable outcomes of intravascular ultrasound or optical coherence tomography-assisted percutaneous coronary intervention

    Aim: The use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) or Optical coherence tomography (OCT) to guide stent placement in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) leads to better clinical outcomes than use of angiography guidance. We hypothesis which image-assisted PCI could lead better clinical outcomes in acute myocardial infarction (MI) patients. Methods: Among 12, 193 patients enrolled the Korean Acute Myocardial Infarction registry, 1,622 patients undergone image-assisted PCI were assigned to the IVUS-assisted PCI group (n=1406) or OCT-assisted PCI group (n=180). The primary outcome was the composite of all-cause death, recurrent MI, including stent thrombosis, any revascularization and cerebrovascular accident (CVA ...
