    Strategies for coronary stenting

     

    Primary stenting would describe
    strategies that involve the predetermined intention to treat a lesion
    with stent implantation.  Although
    this approach has also been described as “routine stenting”
    (as in OPUS 1), “elective stenting” or “systematic
    stenting,” these terms are less favourable

     

    The
    term “direct stenting” should be reserved for the subset of
    primary stent implantation procedures where deployment is carried out
    without initial balloon predilatation. All
    other forms of stent use are “provisional.”
    The stent is deployed if the result of primary treatment device
    is suboptimum.
