Bottom Line: This retrospective single-center study included all consecutive patients with PCI of coronary bifurcations with stent covering of the side branch (SB) between January 2008 - August 2011.Mean follow-up was 14.1 (group A) vs 12.3 (group B, p = ns) months.In patients with coronary bifurcations a simpler strategy has a significantly lower MACE.

ABSTRACT

Background: Treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions is a complex problem.

Methods: This retrospective single-center study included all consecutive patients with PCI of coronary bifurcations with stent covering of the side branch (SB) between January 2008 - August 2011.

Results: Our study group (n = 98) was group A (n = 64, 65.3%) and group B (n = 34, 34.7%). Mean follow-up was 14.1 (group A) vs 12.3 (group B, p = ns) months.

Conclusion: In patients with coronary bifurcations a simpler strategy has a significantly lower MACE.

Trial registration: ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01538186.
