    Left coronary artery calcification patterns after coronary bypass graft surgery: An in‐vivo optical coherence tomography study

    Objectives We sought to evaluate the severity and patterns of calcifications in the left main coronary artery (LMCA) and proximal segments of left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and left circumflex artery (LCX) using optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with and without prior coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Background CABG may accelerate upstream calcium development. Methods OCT images ( n = 76) of the LMCA bifurcation from either the LAD or LCX in 76 patients with at least one patent left coronary graft, on average 7.0 ± 5.6 years post‐CABG, were compared with 148 OCT images in propensity‐score ...
