This module presents the effect and risk of PCI in high-risk patients, such as elderly and female, as well as in high-risk lesions, including bifurcations and chronic total occlusions. Complications related to interventional procedures in these subsets are high. Before the interventional procedure, prevention and management of interventional complications should be understood in thorough detail. Additionally, medical management after intervention should be based on published literatures.
