    Abstract: Left main coronary artery (LMCA) atherosclerotic obstructive disease represents a form of high-risk coronary artery disease since the myocardial area at risk is very extensive, accounting for approximately 70% of the left ventricular mass. Initially, coronary bypass surgery (CABG) was the only myocardial revascularization treatment for this type of complex coronary anatomy. Although surgery has important advantages, the idea of being able to offer minimally invasive treatments has led to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent implantation as an alternative. In this review, we will discuss in detail all the randomized clinical trials that have compared these two interventions and will put their results in perspective.

    Abstract : La enfermedad aterosclerótica obstructiva del tronco coronario común izquierdo (TCI) representa una forma de enfermedad coronaria de alto riesgo dado que el área de miocardio en riesgo es muy extensa, siendo aproximadamente 70% de la masa de ventrículo izquierdo. Inicialmente la cirugía de bypass coronario (CABG) era el único tratamiento de revascularización miocárdica para este tipo de anatomía coronaria compleja. Aunque la cirugía tiene importantes ventajas, la idea de poder ofrecer tratamientos mínimamente invasivos, ha llevado a que se plantee el intervencionismo coronario percutáneo (ICP) con implante de stent como una alternativa. En esta revisión comentaremos en detalle todos los estudios clínicos aleatorizados que han comparado estas dos intervenciones y podremos sus resultados en perspectiva.
