    Complex Bifurcation Lesions: RAndomized Comparison of Modified-T Stenting vs Reconstruction With Self-Expanding Stent and Bioresorbable Scaffold: COBRA II

    Objectives. To evaluate the role of a double bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) strategy in coronary bifurcations, alone or in combination with a dedicated bifurcation device. Methods. COBRA II is a prospective, single-center, randomized controlled trial. Patients were randomized to treatment with biolimus-eluting Axxess bifurcation device (Biosensors) in combination with Absorb BVS (Abbott Vascular) or a modified-T strategy using Absorb BVS. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was performed post procedure and at 30 months. The primary endpoint was change in minimal luminal area (MLA) on OCT from baseline to 30-month follow-up. Clinical endpoints included major adverse cardiac event (MACE) rate. Results. From ...
