Abstract: The objective of the present study was to determine the Left Ventricular (LV) function at 1 year follow-up of patients with chronic total occlusion of the left main coronary artery who underwent successful treatment at Imam Ali Hospital of Kermanshah, Iran from 2010-2013. This cross-sectional analytical study included 128 patients who were diagnosed by chronic total occlusion of the left main coronary artery and underwent coronary angiography and successful PCI (Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) from 2010-2013. The sampling method was convenient method. The required data were gathered using a questionnaire and included demographic data such as age, gender, family history of cardiac diseases, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cigarette smoking, opioid abuse as well as LV ejection fraction based on echocardiography examination. The data were analyzed using the SPSS Software (Ver. 20.0) using descriptive indices and the Kolmogorov-Smirnov and Wilcoxon tests. The results showed that PCI in chronic total occlusion was effective on LVEF. Gender, family history of cardiac diseases, cigarette smoking, opioid abuse, hyperlipidemia and hypertension had no effect on this outcome.
