Paper Abstract

To assess the ability of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging to identify morphologic predictors of restenosis after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, we studied 30 patients undergoing single vessel angioplasty. Our results indicate that IVUS appears to provide useful information that may identify patients at risk for restenosis immediately after angioplasty and may help determine the effectiveness of interventional techniques aimed at reducing plaque burden.
