Abstract

There are limited data regarding percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in patients aged >80 years, a rapidly expanding population that has a 20% prevalence of symptomatic coronary artery disease.1-3 Two studies have reported relatively low success rates, high procedural morbidity and mortality, and no data on restenosis,4,5 whereas a third reported a higher success rate, but had limited angiographic follow-up-only in symptomatic patients.6 We therefore undertook a study to assess the early and long-term outcome of octogenarian patients treated with PTCA.
