Bifurcation lesions

Here you will find all the latest content on bifurcation lesions published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

The percutaneous treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions is very dynamic with an ongoing evolution in clinical approaches and techniques and the management of more complex cases continuing to evolve. Keep up-to-date about all these changes along with the latest research and devices as well as advances in imaging, the use of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access or understanding bleeding risks, all of which can be found here…

Bifurcation stenting, when do I need two stents?

11 Jul 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

Treating bifurcation lesions is a challenge, and the need to convert to a two-stent strategies can be daunting. Join experts G. G. Toth, T. Johnson and F. Mangiacapra as they discuss their own insights and suggestions, reminding us to never forget the provisional approach. What percentage of cases might necessitate converting to a two-stent technique? What elements in anatomy, lesion or the type of patient might require this change? Which two-stent strategy should you begin with – and practice? What imaging tools are useful and what possible role does functional assessment play? Watch video and find out…

Wrap-up interview - Successful left main PCI, what are the right tools and techniques?

From EUROPCR 2017

Why has this been called “the year” of Left Main interventions? A. Latib, O. Mendiz and Z. Ghazzal review the new maturity of an intervention which pioneer A. Grüntzig attempted years ago. Learn about the compelling data today from the EXCEL study showing non-inferiority of the endovascular approach and discover what is unique about the ongoing European Bifurcation Club’s EBC Main trial. Find out how these studies can impact on indications and eventual changes in future guidelines. From new devices – sizes and the choice of 1 or 2 stents – to experience and improved techniques, the critical elements of strategy and the choice of imaging for planning, optimisation and outcome: you’ll find the details here…
