Abstract

The Wallstent (Schneider, Bulach, Switzerland) is available in different lengths without much compromise in flexibility and radial support compared to some other stents. We treated 24 patients (26 vessels) with diffuse coronary lesions or vein graft lesions with intravascular ultrasound-guided peripheral. Wallstent implantation. Average balloon pressure during stent optimization was 16.4 ± 2.7 atm. The stents could be successfully implanted in 24 vessels. Minimal lumen diameter and percent diameter stenosis after stenting were 3.60 ± 0.62 mm and -8 ± 13%, respectively. Average stent length was 63.7 ± 22.7 mm. There was one procedure-related complication. After stenting, all patients were treated only with antiplatelet agents. During 1-month follow-up, there was one subacute stent thrombosis due to incomplete coverage of a distal dissection. These preliminary results show the feasibility of this novel approach in selected lesions.
