BACKGROUND The SYNTAX score helps in the treatment decision in multivessel coronary disease. Coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) can measure the SYNTAX score but has been used in few patients with multivessel disease. Our aim was to assess the feasibility, accuracy and reproducibility of SYNTAX score with CCTA compared with invasive coronary angiography (ICA) in de novo left main and/or 3-vessel disease. METHODS 57 patients with new left main and/or 3-vessel disease on ICA and a… CONTINUE READING
