Abstract

Based on the currently available data, the strategy of routine stent placement in unselected lesions located in small coronary arteries provides good immediate results but is still associated with a high incidence of in-stent restenosis. Randomized trials comparing elective stenting with balloon angioplasty have not provided the demonstration that routine stenting is the best strategy for percutaneous intervention in coronary arteries with a reference diameter smaller than 2.75-3.0 mm. This paper describes the rationale for provisional stenting in this clinical setting and reviews the role of quantitative coronary angiography, intracoronary ultra-sound and intracoronary Doppler measurements in the identification of lesions that would benefit from adjunctive stent placement after balloon angioplasty and in guiding stent implantation.
