However, bifurcation intervention still remains technically challenging. Dedicated bifurcation stents have been designed to specifically treat coronary bifurcations with the aim of dealing with some of the shortcomings of the conventional percutaneous approach to bifurcation intervention. Most of the devices are… CONTINUE READING
