A Prospective Randomized Trial of Side Branch Dilatation Strategies in Patients With Coronary Bifurcation Lesions Undergoing Treatment With a Single Stent - Nordic-Baltic Bifurcation Study III


In the case of coronary bifurcation lesions, stenting of the main artery with optional stenting of the side branch (SB) is the preferred strategy. However, in certain situations, a simple one-stent technique can be employed. In these situations, it is unknown if simultaneous kissing balloon inflation of the main vessel (MV) and the SB post-stenting is associated with better outcomes.
