We report a new stenting technique employed in 10 patients to treat lesions immediately proximal to a bifurcation (pseudobifurcation). A stent is mounted on two balloon catheters and advanced into the lesion immediately proximal to the bifurcation until the distal portion of the balloon catheters enters each branch at the bifurcation. This is followed by kissing balloon inflation for stent deployment. In all 10 cases, the final angiogram showed a good result at the lesion site and no ostial compromise of any of the branches.
