To identify those patient characteristics (e.g. absence of diabetes, hypertension or hypercholesterolaemia, younger age, male sex, etc.) and coronary vessel characteristics (e.g. larger vessel size, absence of side branches or calcifications, straight vessel, concentric stenosis, short discrete lesion, etc.) that may be associated with a high procedural success rate, low in-hospital complication rate and good long-term clinical outcome following PTCA; to identify those patients characteristics (e.g. presence of diabetes, hypertension or hypercholesterolaemia, older age, female sex, etc.) and coronary vessel characeristics (e.g. stenosis, long diffuse lesion, etc.) that may be associated with a poor procedural success rate, high in-hospital complication rate and poor long-term clinical outcome following PTCA.
