Abstract

The present study evaluated in-hospital and 1-year outcomes after multivessel stenting in patients aged ≥80 (75 patients, 241 lesions) and <80 years (894 patients, 2,678 lesions). Despite a high technical success rate of multivessel stenting, octogenarians had higher in-hospital cardiac and noncardiac complication rates and a higher mortality rate at 1-year clinical follow-up compared with their younger counterparts.
