AIMS To evaluate the long-term follow-up of drug-eluting stents (DES) in the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA). METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred and forty-eight patients (mean age 71 +/- 10 years) with ULMCA stenoses underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with DES. Mean ejection fraction (EF) was 63 +/- 13% and distal ULMCA was involved in 63.5% of cases. In-hospital outcome showed one intra-procedural death, no stent thrombosis and 2% non Q-wave myocardial… CONTINUE READING
