Spotlight On PCI

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) includes the use of angioplasty and atherectomy to reduce the stenosis that can occur with coronary artery disease. It also includes the stents that are usually delivered to the lesions that are being treated. According to data provided by Medicare, over 94% of the patients undergoing a PCI will have at least one stent, and according to iDataResearch, the number of stents per procedure was 1.29 in 2018. This has risen from 84% receiving a stent in FY 2011.
