Selection of stenting approach for coronary bifurcation lesions

S-L Chen. Keywords: bifurcation lesions; stenting technique


Coronary bifurcation lesions are a challenging lesion subset of coronary artery obstructive diseases. With the rapid development of stent platforms, drug-coating techniques, a new generation of antiplatelet therapeutic drugs, intravascular imaging, and a better understanding of the abnormal flow dynamics around bifurcated areas, patients after stenting of coronary bifurcation lesions have shown a dramatic reduction in major adverse cardiac events (MACE). In the last decade, the European Bifurcation Club, a leading educational platform, has attempted to improve clinical outcomes in patients with coronary bifurcation lesions, as reflected in the annual updated consensus document.
