Emergency PTCA or CABG for Left Main Disease?

Abstract

The unprotected left main coronary artery supplies a large territory of myocardium and consequently, acute occlusion can result in hemodynamic compromise, life-threatening arrhythmias, and sudden cardiac death. Prompt revascularization is essential in this setting to reduce the high risk of mortality. However, the optimal treatment strategy for patients presenting acutely due to a left main culprit lesion is uncertain, with current guidance regarding this complex patient subset remaining vague. This chapter reviews the current evidence and guidelines available for patients in this complex lesion subset with both ST-segment elevation and non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
