Abstract

We present a case of side-branch restenosis after T-stenting and small protrusion (TAP) technique using a bioresorbable vascular scaffold and a drug-eluting metallic stent. According to intravascular ultrasound imaging findings, the simultaneous balloon deflation after kissing balloon post-dilatation was the likely cause of restenosis. In cases where bifurcation treatment requires the TAP technique, operators should pay particular attention to perform kissing balloon inflation with sequential deflation (main branch first, side branch last).
