We describe five patients with severe unstable angina refractory to medical management in whom coronary angiography demonstrated a severe stenosis of the left main stem. Due to severe co-existing illnesses bypass surgery was deemed inappropriate. Angioplasty to the left main stem stenosis followed by stent deployment was performed. All five patients were successfully discharged from hospital.
