This study has been withdrawn prior to enrollment.

Left main stenosis use to be treated by bypass but with the improvement of angioplasty techniques, an increasing number of patients are submit to left main coronary angioplasty. Consequences of left main intra stent stenosis can be disastrous yet, for the moment, no precise recommendation concerning the follow up of these patients exist. The investigators ought to determine if stress echocardiography can predict left main intra stent stenosis as well (non inferiorly)as control angiography that use to be done.

Condition Intervention
Left Main Coronary Artery Disease
Other: Stress echocardiography

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Évaluation de l'Echographie de Stress Par Comparaison à la Coronarographie Comme Outil Non Invasif de détection de la resténose Intra endoprothèse du Tronc Commun

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation between stress echocardiography results for the detection of left main prosthesis stenosis with coronary angiogram results. [ Time Frame: 9 to 12 months after left main angioplasty ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: July 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Stress echography
Nine to twelve months after their left main angioplasty, patients will go through a stress echo and then the usual control angiography (done routinely in most patient in our center). Patients will act as their own control.
Other: Stress echocardiography
Patients able to exercise will have a treadmill test + echography; the others will have a dobutamine echography.
Other Names:
  • Dobutamine echocardiography
  • Treadmill echocardiography

Detailed Description:
All patients of the study will pass coronary angiogram and stress echocardiography (treadmill of dobutamine).

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients presenting to teaching hospital or stent from community hospitals to teaching hospital and having left main angioplasty

Inclusion Criteria:

  • patients over 18 years old able to give consent and having had left main angioplasty.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Bypass on the left anterior descending coronary artery or left circumflex (" protected left main ")
  • Treating physician judge that angiography need to be done straightaway
  • Follow up elsewhere than the CHUS
  • Patient refusal
  • Pregnant women
  • Stress echo contraindication(Severe high blood pressure or malignant arrhythmia)or condition that limits interpretation (Left bundle branch block or pacemaker rhythm)
