Abstract
There is an ongoing controversy regarding the efficacy and safety of different percutaneous stenting techniques for coronary bifurcation lesions needing >1 stent. The promise of safe vessel restoration with bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS) may not be transferable to complex double BRS bifurcation techniques, and permanent metallic scaffolding of the bifurcation core may be needed. We identified modified-T stenting as the most promising fully bioresorbable 2-stent strategy in a preclinical setting. The objective of this study is to assess acute performance and compare long-term vessel healing with this strategy, versus an approach combining BRS with a dedicated metallic drug-eluting bifurcation stent.
