BACKGROUND: Left main coronary artery (LMCA) chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has received limited study. METHODS: We reviewed 4436 CTO-PCIs performed in 4340 patients between 2012 and 2018 at 25 sites. LMCA-CTO-PCI was performed in 20 cases (0.45%). We examined the clinical and angiographic characteristics and procedural outcomes of these cases. RESULTS: Mean patient age was 68 ± 11 years and 65% were men. Most patients (85%) had undergone prior coronary artery bypass graft surgery and had a protected left main. Mean J-CTO score was 2.7 ± 1.3, mean PROGRESS-CTO score was 1.3 ± 1.1, and mean PROGRESS-CTO Complications score was 3.8 ± 1.9. Antegrade-wire escalation was the most common successful crossing strategy (50%), followed by retrograde crossing (30%) and antegrade dissection/re-entry (10%). Technical and procedural success rates were both 85%. One patient with failed LMCA-CTO-PCI had periprocedural myocardial infarction. Median procedure time was 178 minutes (interquartile range [IQR], 123-250 minutes), median contrast volume was 190 mL (IQR, 133-339 mL), and patient air kerma radiation dose was 2.6 Gray (IQR, 1.3-3.9 Gray). CONCLUSIONS: LMCA-CTO-PCI is infrequent, is performed mostly in patients with prior coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and is associated with good procedural outcomes.

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a complex disease with various components, genetic as well as environmental. Previous reports correlating ALOX5AP gene variants and CAD showed conflicting results depending on the population studied. In this study, we examined the contribution of ALOX5AP genetic predisposition to CAD in a group of CAD patients and controls carefully selected from the Lebanese population. We genotyped SNPs for ALOX5AP variants in 289 catheterized patients aged ≤52 years with >50% stenosis in at least one main coronary artery and 227 catheterized control subjects aged 60 years and above with 0% stenosis. Chi-square (χ (2)) tests and logistic regression showed no significant difference in the allele and genotype frequencies between the CAD or myocardial infarction (MI) cases and the healthy controls. Haplotype analysis using PHASE showed that the distribution of the risk haplotypes among cases and controls were not significantly different and had no attributable risk to CAD (P = 1.00 and P = 0.5, respectively) or MI (P = 0.2 and P = 0.5, respectively). Our data revealed that ALOX5AP gene variants are not predictors of CAD risk or MI risk among Lebanese patients.
