Abstract

Clinical findings and natural history of 92 patients (pts) having a 75% or greater stenosis of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) were compared with those of 100 pts with more distal 3-vessels lesions. The LMCAD pts were divided into 3 subgroups: 9 pts with isolated LMCAD, 13 pts with associated distal left coronary lesions, 70 pts with associated right and left coronary lesions. The results of these comparisons showed that: there are no significant clinical differences between LMCA pts and 3-vessels disease pts; LMCAD have the most severe prognosis among any other coronary disease; the subgroup with isolated LMCAD seems to be characterized by a particularly unstable clinical picture.
