Coronary bifurcation stenting using dedicated bifurcation stents

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. 2000 Jan;49(1):105-11. doi: 10.1002/(sici)1522-726x(200001)49:1<105::aid-ccd25>;2-2.


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.
