The placement of stents in coronary arteries has been shown to be effective bail out procedure and reduce restenosis in comparison to balloon angioplasty. We experienced coronary stenting in 8 patients with coronary artery disease and report our results.


From October 1995 to April 1996, 8 cases of coronary artery stenting were per-formed at the Ewha Womans University Hospital. We evaluated results of the procedure, in-hospital complications, follow-up coronary angiography and follow-up clinical events.


All lesions were successfully stented without in-hospital complications including death, myocardial infarction, repeat coronary angioplasty, or CABG. During 2 months of fol-low-up, there was no clinical events. Follow-up coronary angiography was performed in one case, showing no restenosis.


Acute procedural results and angiographic and follow-up clinical outcomes were favorable, so coronary stenting seemed to be good therapeutic tool in treatment of coronary artery disease.
