Abstract: The cardiac catheterisation laboratory interventional audit for 2007 showed that 761 cases were performed, treating at total of 941 lesions. Unstable coronary syndromes accounted for 59% of all cases. Coronary stenting was performed in 93.3% of cases, with drug-eluting stents being utilised 88% of the time. Adjunctive therapies included intra-aortic balloon pumping in 3.1% of cases, & 19.5% of patients received a glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor. Procedural success was attained in 96.1% of cases, with an overall mortality rate of 0.53%, and a similar 0.53% of patients proceeded to surgical revascularisation in the same admission.
