Despite large improvements in the treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD), it is still the leading cause of death worldwide. The advent of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in clinical practice was a clinical milestone and has dramatically improved the prognosis of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
