Mario Gössl, David R. Holmes

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Octogenarians are a growing population of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and, yet, they are under-represented in clinical trials. Wang et al. demonstrate the increasing need for PCI, but declining use of drug-eluting stents in this age group, despite associated reductions in mortality, myocardial infarction, and rehospitalization.
