BACKGROUND Lesions located at the ostium of the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) are considered an ideal target for directional atherectomy (DCA), but few data are available about the value of using this strategy before stenting in comparison with stenting alone. OBJECTIVES To investigate the immediate and mid term clinical and angiographic results of DCA followed by stent implantation for ostial LAD lesions. DESIGN Retrospective comparison of the immediate and mid term… CONTINUE READING
