Abstract

Side branch occlusion is 1 mechanism for the increase of creatine phosphokinase-MB after percutaneous coronary intervention and is associated with long-term adverse events. We studied 248 patients who underwent brachytherapy for in-stent restenosis with and without side branches, compared levels of creatine phosphokinase-MB with procedural, in-hospital, and long-term clinical outcomes, and found that patients with side branches have increased levels of creatine phosphokinase-MB after percutaneous coronary intervention and higher rates of restenosis, target vessel, and target lesion revascularization at 6-month follow-up.
