In an attempt to determine the early and late outcomes of small vessel stenting, we retrospectively evaluated our database on 51 consecutive patients (41 mates, mean age, 57.1 +/- 10.1 years) who underwent stenting of at least one significant lesion in a coronary artery with a reference vessel diameter (RVD) < 2.8 mm between March 1999 and March 2001.
