Abstract

In the last years new techniques and user-friendly stents have improved the results of stent implantation in coronary bifurcational lesions but difficulties in stent deployment and incomplete coverage of the bifurcation remain a problem. We describe the case of a proximal lesion of the anterior descending artery involving a large diagonal branch treated with the Carina Bard bifurcate stent, a new device that allows the complete immediate coverage of a bifurcational lesion with a single stent.
