Abstract

This report of the Registry for the Society for Cardiac Angiography and Interventions provides data on the trends in coronary interventional procedures from the time period June 1966 through December 1998. A total of 19,510 consecutive coronary interventional procedures were recorded. Over this time period, significant trends in coronary stent implantation were recorded along with a decreasing reliance on balloon angioplasty as sole therapy. Patients with acute myocardial infarction comprised an increased fraction of all procedures. Almost half of all interventions were performed in patients with multivessel disease. Finally, decreasing rates of in- hospital death and emergent bypass surgery compared to prior reports from the registry characterize the current practice of interventional cardiology.
