Multi-vessel coronary disease, particularly three-vessel one is an indication for cardiosurgery intervention. Over few last years, improving of catheter intervention technique and stent implantation has significantly decreased a number of patients as candidates for any surgery procedure. Our study included 79 patients with coronary disease, mean age 62,5 years. All treated patients had previously undergone some of the following interventions: PTCA in 26 (32,9%), PTCA+stent in 18 (22,8%), stent followed by CABG in 22 (27,8%) and CABG in 13 patients (16,5%). Mean vessel occlusion was 83,5%. We performed PTCA+stent in 48 patients (60,8%), PTCA+laser in 4 (5,1%) nad laser in 6 patients (7,6%). Sucessful coronary vessel recanalisation was achieved in 58 patients (73,4%) and mean degree of remaining vessel occlusion was 38,5%. CABG was indicated in 21 (26,6%) patients.
