Relevant Catheterization Findings

Left Coronary Artery was engaged with JL 3.5, 7F guide catheter. A 0.014” SION BLUE wire was used to cross the Left Main to LAD lesion. Pre dilation done with SC Sapphire Balloon 2.75 X10 mm @ 10 atmosphere. Drug Eluting Stent XIENCE XPEDITION LL 3.5 X 38 mm deployed in Left Main to Proximal LAD @ 10 atmosphere. Post dilation done with NC Sapphire Balloon 4.5 X 8 mm @ 10 atmosphere. GP IIb IIIa inhibitor was used during the procedure. Excellent result with TIMI III flow. Successful PTCA with stenting to Left Main to LAD.
Percutaneous intervention with stent implantation for LMCA disease has become a standard procedure in contemporary practice with safety, expedited recovery, and durability. Precise selection of the strategy aided by intra coronary imaging, functional evaluation, and mechanical support when needed have improved the immediate and long-term results in this high risk intervention. It is however important to have a team approach and operator expertise before embarking on LMCA interventions
