“The left main artery of the coronary tree is very important because it supplies about 80% of the heart muscles. Any complication during intervention in the left main artery stenosis can be catastrophic,” says Dr. DS Gambhir in an interview with Dr. Rishi Jain. “Depending on whether the obstruction is in one or both the branches of the left main artery- LAD and circumflex, a one-stent or two-stent technique is used. Also, stenting is not recommended when arteries are calcified.” “For a diabetic patient with left main distal bifurcation, bypass surgery is preferred but for non-diabetics, depending on other factors, both methods of operation can be considered. Bypass surgery is also not a good option for the elderly.”
