Abstract

Treatment of bifurcation lesions is a complex issue, and there is no single panacea to the variety of lesions that form this cohort. The contribution of side-branch compromise to the adverse clinical events occurring after stent implantation need not be stressed and requires an aggressive approach including balloon dilatation before and after stent deployment. Various new techniques of kissing stent placement, such as the 'T', 'V', 'Y', and the culottes technique, have been proposed in recent years to treat different anatomical situations. The angle formed by the side-branches, the severity of involvement of the ostia and the vessel size are the main factors which influence selection of the strategy. Newer generations of stents, such as the bifurcate stents, tailor-made for bifurcation lesions, are evolving, and are expected to make a positive impact on the procedural outcomes and long-term results after bifurcation stenting. The development of new strategies and stent designs has greatly improved safety and immediate outcome of bifurcational stenting, but the procedural success still needs to be matched by an equal improvement in long-term patency.
