Background: The data of long-term outcomes of sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) according to lesion location of unprotected left main coronary artery (LMCA) is scarce. Hypothesis: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcomes after implantation of the SES in LMCA. Methods: A total of 84 patients (51 males) who had undergone SES implantation for the treatment of native LMCA stenosis were enrolled. The patients were divided into 2 groups based on angiographic lesion location: those with significant stenosis in the ostium and/or body (group 1; n = 39) and those involving bifurcation (group 2; n = 45). Results: All of the group 1 patients were treated with simple lesion coverage while different stenting techniques were used in group 2 (cross-over: 44.8%, T: 6.7%, kissing: 37.8%, and crush techniques: 11.1%). The 8-month quantitative angiographic findings and in-hospital and 2 year rates of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) were compared between the 2 groups. Although angiographic success and in-hospital MACE rates were similar in both groups with 1 cardiac death due to acute stent thrombosis in group 2, at 2-year follow-up, the MACE rate was significantly higher in group 2 than in group 1 at 2 years (22.2% vs 2.6%, respectively, P = 0.008). Coronary angiography revealed a significantly higher binary restenosis rate in group 2 compared with group 1 (20% vs 0%, respectively, P = 0.003). Conclusions: Interventional treatment using SES in left main lesions showed favorable short-term and long- term outcomes in selected patients with lesion location being an important determinant of clinical and angiographic outcomes.
