Prof. Adrian Banning (John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, UK) presents this webinar on the use of IVUS imaging in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of Left Main Coronary Artery Disease.

This webinar is intended to educate interventional cardiologists, interventional fellows and related healthcare professionals, and discusses and analyses the role of intravascular imaging with intravascular ultrasound in LMCA PCI, focusing on the main applications in this context from lesion assessment to stent sizing and optimisation.

The webinar/clinical case scenarios will:

  • Provide the background for LMCA disease and its treatment, including findings from the SYNTAX study comparing the use of CABG and PCI interventions in the LMCA setting
  • Highlight the role and recommended use of IVUS in interventions for LMCA, including rationale for its use versus coronary angiography
  • Definition of when to use IVUS as determined by validated MLA cut-off values
  • Outline of the use of IVUS imaging for characterisation of LMCA disease and to facilitate stent sizing and stent optimisation
  • Discuss real-life case studies describing IVUS in ostial left main disease and bifurcation left main disease
  • Present a workflow algorithm to guide the operator, in a step-wise manner, on the use of IVUS applications in the LMCA setting
