Dedicated Bifurcation Stent technology for Complex Bifurcation Angioplasty

The treatment perspective for bifurcation lesions has been altered due to the use of drug-eluting stents in clinical practices. There are numerous devices and techniques for the treatment of bifurcation lesions which are metallic stents, balloon angioplasty, newly designed stents with dedicated access to side branch, drug-eluting stents, and fully bifurcated stents.
The outcomes of coronary lesions including bifurcation lesions are improved with the newer generation drug-eluting stents. A blockage in the site where blood vessels divide into two is known as a bifurcation lesion. There is narrowing in two branches of the blood vessel. The preferred treatment for bifurcation lesion is a provisional approach of placing a stent in the main vessel. Some lesions require 2 stents.

For optimal clinical and angiographic results, skilled technique in the 2-stenting process and use of imaging including OCT or IVUS are warranted. The feasible treatment options are dedicated bifurcation stents. The coronary artery narrowing involving the origin of the significant side branch is a bifurcation lesion.

Coronary bifurcations vary in basal anatomy and in anatomical changes. Bifurcation percutaneous coronary intervention has accepted a single or a dedicated stent strategy. The outcomes of bifurcation are largely improved due to the above-mentioned advancement. The dedicated stent has several advantages. The stent covers both the branches and it is drug coated. It helps in accessing both branches of the artery if required in the future. The quantity of dye used is less and the duration of the procedure is much lesser.
