Six-month success of intracoronary stenting for anomalous coronary arteries associated with myocardial ischemia

Am J Cardiol. 2000 Sep 1;86(5):580-2, A10. doi: 10.1016/s0002-9149(00)01023-7.

Abstract

Fourteen patients with anomalous coronary arteries associated with objective evidence of myocardial ischemia, a group at increased risk for cardiac events, were successfully stented. This led to 6-month patency and resolution of the ischemia, which was confirmed angiographically and by stress imaging studies.
