Abstract

Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) for coronary artery disease is currently as successful in women as it is in men. Acute and long-term results are similar for both sexes. Differences in the size of the coronary arteries may have accounted for gender differences in earlier series. However, improved PTCA technology has eliminated gender differences in outcome.
