    A 55-year-old male underwent an exercise treadmill test which was positive at stage 1. Coronary angiography (Figure 1A, Moving image 1) demonstrated a long segment of disease in the proximal-mid left anterior descending (LAD) artery. A fractional flow reserve study was positive at 0.71, with no localising lesion on hyperaemic pullback. In addition, >5 mm disease was present in the ostial-proximal first diagonal. A hybrid mini-crush approach was adopted. The LAD was predilated with a 3.0 mm non-compliant (NC) balloon. A 2.25×24 mm Promus PREMIER (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA) drug-eluting stent (DES) was implanted in ...
