Effectiveness of percutaneous coronary interventions to prevent recurrent coronary events in patients on chronic hemodialysis

Am J Cardiol. 1998 Aug 1;82(3):378-80. doi: 10.1016/s0002-9149(98)00347-6.


Patients on chronic hemodialysis undergoing percutaneous coronary revascularization have similar rates of procedural success and in-hospital event rates when compared with a matched cohort. However, patients on chronic hemodialysis have a marked increase in 36-month target vessel revascularization, myocardial infarction, and death rates.
