Coronary bifurcation stenting using dedicated bifurcation stents
Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions , Volume 49 - Issue 1 p. 105- 111
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.
