Elderly patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have a higher risk of both ischemic and bleeding complications than younger patients. However, few studies have reported how genetic information of elderly patients treated with PCI affects clinical outcomes. We investigated the impact of genetic variants on clinical outcomes in elderly patients. Correlations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (CYP2C19 and P2Y12 receptor gene G52T polymorphism) and clinical outcomes were analyzed in 811 elderly patients (≥75 years of age) from a prospective multicenter registry. The primary endpoint was a composite of myocardial infarction and death. Secondary endpoints were an individual event of death, cardiac death, myocardial
