Abstract

Key PointsQuestionAre some patients undergoing incomplete revascularization (IR) with percutaneous coronary interventions at higher risk than others? FindingsIn this registry-based study, patients with IR in a vessel with at least 90% stenosis were at higher risk than other patients with IR. More than 20% of all patients with percutaneous coronary interventions had IR of 2 or more vessels, and more than 30% had IR with more than 90% stenosis. MeaningPatients with percutaneous coronary interventions with IR are at higher risk of mortality if they have IR with at least 90% stenosis, IR in 2 or more vessels, or proximal left anterior descending artery IR.
