The four subtypes of anomalous origin of the left main coronary artery
from the right aortic sinus (or from the right coronary artery).
The patient was stabilised and urgent coronary angiography revealed a large dissection of the left main coronary artery
, with absence of flow in both the left anterior descending and circumflex coronary arteries.
for the treatment of patients with multi- vessel disease, lesions in the left main coronary artery
or patients with Diabetes Mellitus.
Stenting of the left main coronary artery
provided TIMI 3 flow downstream to an impaired left coronary circulation system, relieving ongoing ischemia from his extensive disease.
Coronary arteriography revealed a 95% narrowing of the distal left main coronary artery
, luminal irregularities in the left anterior descending coronary artery, a 50% stenosis in the left circumflex coronary artery, and a 60% to 70% narrowing in the mid portion of the right coronary artery, which gave collaterals to the left anterior descending artery.
Recommended indications include significant left main coronary artery
stenosis, stenosis [greater than or equal to] =70% in the proximal left anterior descending (LAD) and proximal left circumflex artery, and 3-vessel coronary artery disease.
The diameter of coronary vessels decreases from 5 mm in the left main coronary artery
down to 1 mm in the distal left anterior descending coronary artery (6).
Ergonovine provocation test was performed, and after the third bolus of ergonovine, the left main coronary artery
showed evidence of coronary spasm with at least a 75% obstruction (Fig.
Left main coronary artery
arising from the right sinus of Valsalva
The stented artery was a left main coronary artery
in eight percent of the cases examined in the series.
The study randomised 1800 patients with previously treated three vessel or left main coronary artery
disease or both in 85 sites in 17 countries across Europe and the USA.
The RCA began adjacent to the ostium of the left main coronary artery
, coursed between the aorta and pulmonary trunk, and had a characteristic "slit-like" ostial orifice (Figure).
will present an analysis of the SYNTAX Score titled "Usefulness of the SYNTAX score for predicting clinical outcome after percutaneous coronary intervention of unprotected left main coronary artery
disease," during an abstract session at 5:35 p.
Subsequently, diagnostic coronary arteriography revealed an anomalous origin of left main coronary artery
arising from right sinus of Valsalva with an interarterial course between pulmonary artery and aorta.
The left main coronary artery
is a common location for bifurcation disease.
