The kissing stenting using a new technique in two patients is reported. A stent was positioned at the ostium of the side branch. Another stent was advanced into the main vessel until the center of the stent was positioned near the origin of the side branch. The stent at the ostium of the side branch was deployed and the balloon and the guidewire were removed from the side branch. Thereafter, the stent in the main vessel was deployed. The follow-up angiogram of those patients showed no restenosis in both the vessels.
