Abstract: In 1995, from 12 participating units, there were 1108 PTCA compared to 697 in 1994, 24 rotational atherectomy and 109 intracoronary stent placements performed. These were complicated by 6 acute myocardial infarction, 10 emergency surgeries and 11 deaths. Success rate was 92 per cent. Indication for transcatheter revascularization were stable angina pectoris in 60 per cent of cases, unstable angina in 18 per cent and post infarct angina in 16 per cent. Thirty cases were done in AMI setting. Of those 1108 vessels approached, 1297 lesions were in native arteries and 9 were in saphenous vein grafts. Most lesions were in AHA/ACC type B category. One hundred and fourteen stents were placed in 109 patients in 1995. Seven stents emboli occurred in addition to one myocardial infarction, 2 CABG, 2 death and 2 major bleeding. Transcutaneous coronary revascularization has increased in number with acceptable results. Coronary stenting was done in an average of 10 per cent of all procedures and also with reasonable complication rates.
