Aims: A new coronary bifurcation provisional stenting technique without kissing balloon, rePOT, associating proximal optimizing technique (POT), side-branch inflation and final POT, showed excellent mechanical results in a bench test. The present study sought to use optical coherence tomography (OCT) to quantify the mechanical results of rePOT in vivo in a large patient sample with complex coronary bifurcations.

Methods and results: 106 patients with c…
