Perioperative management of patients after percutaneous coronary intervention presents physicians with unique challenges and dilemmas. Although newer generation drug-eluting stents, transcatheter-based therapies, and minimally invasive surgical techniques have changed the medical landscape, guidelines for managing perioperative patients after percutaneous intervention are based largely on expert opinion and inconsistent data from an earlier era. In conclusion, the aims of this review are to summarize the data pertinent to managing patients after percutaneous coronary intervention in the perioperative period and to explore future perspectives.
