1 Percutaneous coronary intervention in progress. Above the patient’s chest is the X-ray imaging camera. Fluoroscopic images, electrocardiogram and haemodynamic data are viewed on eye-level screens. All catheterisation laboratory operators wear lead protection covering body, thyroid and eyes, and there is lead shielding between the primary operator and patient. 3 Deployment of a balloon-mounted stent across stenotic lesion. Once the guide catheter is satisfactorily engaged, the lesion is crossed with a guidewire and the balloon-mounted stent positioned to cover the lesion (a).

The score is based on the presence or absence of specific criteria. These include the number, length and location of lesions, left main stem disease, three-vessel disease, total occlusions, tortuosity, bifurcation or trifurcation, aorto-ostial lesions, thrombus, calcification, diffuse disease and dominance. com. Analysis of the 2-year outcome data according to baseline SYNTAX score suggests that patients with low (<22) or intermediate (23–32) scores have similar outcomes with PCI or bypass surgery, whereas in those with a high score (≥33) bypass surgery remains the standard of care.

2). Although neointimal proliferation through the struts of the stent occurs, it is insufficient to cancel out the initial gain, leading to a larger lumen size and hence reduces restenosis. Maximising the vessel lumen is therefore a crucial mechanism for reducing restenosis. 7). Early stent problems As a result of initial studies, stents were predominantly used either as ‘bail out’ devices for acute vessel closure during coronary angioplasty (thus avoiding the need for immediate coronary artery bypass surgery) or for restenosis after angioplasty.
