The left main coronary artery provides the primary source of blood flow to the left ventricle. Diseases affecting the left main, by itself or in combination with multivessel disease, place the patient at significant risk for life-threatening cardiovascular events. Treatment requires an understanding of all available tools, devices and techniques, like those employed in invasive imaging and functional assessment, as well as taking into account underlying comorbidities such as diabetes. Advances in imaging techniques, as well as the use of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access or invasive interventions such as bypass surgery, are important, as are understanding bleeding risks, all of which can be found here…

PCI for the left main stem and other bifurcation lesions

The European Bifurcation Club (EBC) was initiated in 2004 to support a continuous overview of the field of coronary artery bifurcation interventions and aims to facilitate a scientific discussion and an exchange of ideas on the management of bifurcation disease. It hosts an annual, two-day compact meeting which is finalised with a consensus statement that reflects the opinion of interventional cardiologists and of other scientists on bifurcation management. The present document represents the summary of the up-to-date EBC consensus and recommendations from the 12 annual EBC meeting in 2016 in Rotterdam.
