Abstract

Objective To investigate procedural success rates and long-term clinical outcome of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusions (CTO) in elderly patients. Background Little is known about procedural success and long-term clinical outcome of PCI for CTO in the elderly. Methods A total of 1,791 consecutive patients with 1,852 CTO underwent PCI at three large centers in USA, Italy, and South Korea. Outcomes included procedural success and major adverse cardiac events (MACE, composite of mortality, myocardial infarction, or coronary artery bypass graft surgery [CABG]).Time-to-event analyses were performed using Kaplan-Meier statistics, and the log-rank statistic was used to test for differences between patients aged ≥75 and patients aged
