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

Description:

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.
