Hungary and Poland share their most educational cases: strategies of left main coronary artery stenting in ACS and complex bifurcation treatment in stable angina

With the collaboration of the Hungarian Association of Cardiovascular Interventions and the Association of Cardiovascular Interventions of the Polish Cardiac Society

Chairpersons: J. Legutko, B. Merkely

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the different treatments for left main and non-left main coronary artery bifurcation stenting in stable or ACS patients
  • To show different strategies of left main coronary artery stenting (one stent, two stents, dedicated stent)
  • To show different bifurcational approaches in stable angina with complex lesions: CTO, aneurysm and calcified lesion

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Session objectives
  • Case 1: stable angina: use of the reverse wire technique for preserving the distal bifurcation after antegrade crossing of a CTO
  • Case 2: ACS: complex distal left main PCI with rotablation and two-stent strategy
  • Case 3: stable angina: transradial stent-assisted coil embolisation for the treatment of aneurysm involving a coronary bifurcation
  • Case 4: ACS: complex distal left main PCI with bifurcation dedicated stent
  • Case 6: ACS: complex distal left main PCI with self-apposing DES
