Clinical Case : Significant LM Diameter Mismatch Treated with IVUS-guidance
Bill Gogas, Fei Ye (syndicatedfeeds)


LTRA 6F JL4 GC w/ Seldinger technique.

Buddy wire technique to cross angulated ostium of LAD w/ Runthrough NS.

Following distal placement of BMW wire, Runtrhough NS was retrieved.

Sequential balloon dilatations w/ 2,5 NC Sprinter Legend from distal to proximal with increasing atmospheres from 10 to 18 was performed. IVUS indicated distal LAD w/ RVD of at least 2,5 mm and proximal LAD media to media diameter of 3,5 mm suggested by IVUS (BS, US) which equals (3,5 mm - 0,25 mm) to vessel diameter of 3,25 mm.

Distal LM PB: 45-50% while proximal LM: >55%.

Distal LAD was treated w/ a 2,5 x 35 DES and mid- to prox-LAD up to distal LM with 3.0 x 28 mm DES*.

*DES of 3.0 or 3.5 mm can be post-dilated up to 4.25 mm

Proximal LAD was post-dilated with 3.0 NC Sprinter balloon to reach expansion of 3,5 mm and LM was post-dilated with 4.0 NC balloon to reach diameter of 4.5 mm.

IVUS confirmed MSAs: LM > 11mm2 & LAD > 7 mm2.

Good angiographic result confirmed by IVUS optimal geometric indices post-stent deployments.
