Contemporary Trends, Predictors and Outcomes of Perforation During Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (From the NCDR Cath PCI Registry).
The American journal of cardiology
Coronary artery perforation (CP) is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Given the marked increase in high-risk and complex PCIs, careful review and understanding of PCI complications may help to improve procedural and clinical outcomes. Our aim was to study the trends, predictors and outcomes of CP in the contemporary era. This cross-sectional multicenter analysis included data collected from institutions participating in the National Cardiovascular Data Registry CathPCI Registry between July 2009 and June 2015. Multivariable logistic regression models were created to identify predictors of CP and compare the in-hospital outcomes of CP and non-CP patients. Of 3,759,268 PCIs performed during the study period, there were 13,779 CP (0.37%). During the study period, the proportion of PCI that developed CP remained unchanged (0.33% to 0.4%) (p for trend 0.16). Chronic total occlusion (CTO) PCI as percentage of total PCI volume increased over the study period (3% to 4%) (p for trend
