We report three cases of successful implantation of three different stents specially designed for bifurcation lesions, guided by intracoronary ultrasound. The BARD and AVE are true bifurcated stents for side-branch access and the NIR-Side Royal is a single modified NIR stent with an aperture to allow provisional bifurcation stenting. These designs introduce a new era in percutaneous management of coronary bifurcation lesions. Cathet. Cardiovasc. Intervent. 49:105–111, 2000.
