EuroPCR 2018 | SYNTAX III REVOLUTION: Excellent Correlation Between Angiography and Computerized Tomography in Patients with Left Main and Multivessel Disease

In patients with left main or three-vessel coronary disease, heart team decisions on revascularization strategy (angioplasty or surgery) may be made based solely on noninvasive computerized tomography (CT) angiography, since there is great correlation between its results and those determined by conventional angiography. For the SYNTAX III REVOLUTION study, Dr. Serruys and his colleagues randomized

El uso del ultrasonido intravascular en la angioplastia de tronco no protegido se asocia con mejores resultados en comparación con la angioplastia guiada solo por angiografía.

The use of IVUS in unprotected left main PCI associated to better outcomes, compared to angiography guided PCI

Courtesy of Dr. Gustavo Leiva. Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) has traditionally been the procedure of choice in patients with left main coronary artery disease. However, the use of percutaneous techniques in this kind of lesions has been on the rise, partly due to recent research showing similar outcomes with both procedures.   Unprotected left main
