Aims: We investigated the mechanism and predictors of jailed branch vessel (BV) compromise during the stenting of left main trunk (LMT) bifurcation lesions from a multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) analysis. Methods and results: Eighty patients who underwent MDCT and stenting for LMT bifurcation lesions were examined. The patients were retrospectively classified into a BV stenosis (BVS; n=38) group and a non-BV stenosis (NBVS; n=42) group according to a coronary angiography obtained just after crossover stent deployment for the target vessel (TV). The angle between the LMT and TV was significantly wider in the BVS group than in the NBVS group (140.2±10.3 degree vs. 132.6±14.2 degree, p=0.0076), and the frequency of carina side plaque at the TV in the long and short axis was significantly higher in the BVS group than in the NBVS group (50.0% vs. 16.7%; p=0.0012, 63.2% vs. 38.1%; p=0.0251, respectively). In a multivariate analysis, the presence of carina side plaque at the TV in the long and short axis were independent predictors of BVS (odds ratio: 5.15, p=0.0086, odds ratio: 3.83, p=0.0231, respectively). Conclusions: The plaque distribution and morphology assessed by MDCT may provide useful information that can predict the potential compromise of the BV during treatment for an LMT bifurcation lesion.
