The purpose of this study is to determine whether percutaneous coronary angioplasty with Taxus drug eluting stent is safe and effective in the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery disease associated to other coronary lesions or not.
Coronary artery bypass graft is the reference treatment of left main coronary artery disease. With the advancements of technology and particularly drug-eluting stents, in-stent restenosis has dramatically decreased and now it is possible to extend indications of complexes lesions such as left main coronary artery stenoses. In these particular situations,some centers performed percutaneous coronary angioplasty (PCI) with drug-eluting stents with acceptable results in terms of safety and efficacy. However, these procedures are performed at isolated sites and are not evaluated in multicenter trial.The aim of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of this PCI with Taxus-stent in a french multicenter trial and to evaluate clinical and angiographic outcome of these patients at long-term follow-up.

A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
