Part 3 - Approach to LMS & Choosing Stent Strategy

In the third live case Dr Thierry Lefèvre is joined by Dr Alaide Chieffo & Dr Barbara Stähli to discuss LM PCI Strategy and current evidence in revascularization in Multivessel Disease. Then we go live to Clinique Saint Augustin in Bordeaux with Dr Olivier Darremont and Dr Nicolas Boudou where the patient had what appeared to be a very tight distal LMS trifurcation. Utilizing HD IVUS guidance allowed the team to make an informed decision on which stent strategy to use.
