We investigated the impact of metabolic syndrome (MS) on the occurrence of in-stent restenosis (ISR) and long-term major adverse cardiac events (MACEs), including cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, and target vessel revascularization (TVR) during a follow-up period of 36 months after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent implantation in patients with significant preexisting coronary artery disease. MS was not an independent predictor of increased ISR and MACE after PCI.
