Randomized Comparison of Conservative Versus Aggressive Strategy for Provisional Side Branch Intervention in Coronary Bifurcation Lesions

Abstract

Methods In this prospective randomized trial, 258 patients with a coronary bifurcation lesion treated with drug-eluting stents were randomized to a conservative (n 128) or aggressive (n 130) SB intervention strategy. The criteria for SB intervention after main vessel stenting differed between the conservative and aggressive groups; Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction flow grade 3 versus diameter stenosis 75% for non–left main bifurcations and diameter stenosis 75% versus diameter stenosis 50% for left main bifurcations. The primary endpoint was target vessel failure (cardiac death, myocardial infarction, or target vessel revascularization) at 12 months.
