Left main and multivessel disease

Here you will find all the latest content on left main and multivessel disease published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

The left main coronary artery provides the primary source of blood flow to the left ventricle. Diseases affecting the left main, by itself or in combination with multivessel disease, place the patient at significant risk for life-threatening cardiovascular events. Treatment requires an understanding of all available tools, devices and techniques, like those employed in invasive imaging and functional assessment, as well as taking into account underlying comorbidities such as diabetes. Advances in imaging techniques, as well as the use of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access or invasive interventions such as bypass surgery, are important, as are understanding bleeding risks, all of which can be found here…

Wrap-up interview - Successful left main PCI, what are the right tools and techniques?

From EUROPCR 2017

Why has this been called “the year” of Left Main interventions? A. Latib, O. Mendiz and Z. Ghazzal review the new maturity of an intervention which pioneer A. Grüntzig attempted years ago. Learn about the compelling data today from the EXCEL study showing non-inferiority of the endovascular approach and discover what is unique about the ongoing European Bifurcation Club’s EBC Main trial. Find out how these studies can impact on indications and eventual changes in future guidelines. From new devices – sizes and the choice of 1 or 2 stents – to experience and improved techniques, the critical elements of strategy and the choice of imaging for planning, optimisation and outcome: you’ll find the details here…

Left main PCI in every day practice

From EUROPCR 2017

How do you manage patients in the cathlab who present with significant left main disease?  Is there a real choice today? J. Byrne, G. Stankovic and A Baumbach review what we know, and what that means for the way we approach left main disease. What does data from recent trials indicate? What are the different elements involved in having a more “patient-focused” decision-making process? Balancing risks and benefits, taking into account differences in anatomy such as distal left main, imaging modalities, scoring systems, DAPT and follow-up – learn more here…
