AIMS The aim of this study was to assess the ability of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to guide recrossing during percutaneous coronary interventions in bifurcations and to reduce strut malapposition. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty-two patients undergoing elective treatment of bifurcation lesions using provisional stenting as default strategy were included in the study. Patients were divided into two groups: OCT-guided stent recrossing (group 1, n=12), and angiography-guided recrossing (group… CONTINUE READING
