ABSTRACT
Angiographic detection of critical stenosis of left main coronary artery (LMCA) dramatically alters the patient's treatment approach. Therefore it should be examined further. This image of the LMCA may be due to sharp angulation, catheter-induced spasm or the relative stenosis due to ectatic LMCA. Operators can be avoided unnecessary revascularization procedures with further investigation. We report the image of angiographically severe stenosis of the LMCA due to a sharp angulation.
