    Does OCT Optimise Results of Stenting on the Left Main Stem

    Angiographic evaluation of lesions of the left main stem presents particular challenges and high procedural complexity. The clinical sequelae of a suboptimal result in this context may be severe, and thus, it is recommended that patients with left-main lesions be considered for imaging-guided interventions by means of optimal coherence tomography (OCT) in non-ostial left main lesions. The investigators have previously demonstrated in a randomized trial of patients undergoing PCI for a lesion responsible for non ST elevation acute coronary syndromes that OCT provides useful clinical information beyond that obtained by angiography alone, and OCT-guidance for angioplasty in these patients yielded ...
