    Treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions with the Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold in combination with the Tryton dedicated coronary bifurcation stent: evaluation using two- and three-dimensional optical coherence tomography

    Aims: The Tryton bifurcation stent has been developed to improve clinical outcomes after treatment of bifurcation lesions. Limited data are available on the use of the Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) in bifurcation lesions with side branches >2 mm. We present here the acute procedural results and midterm clinical follow-up of the first-in-man combined use of the Tryton stent and the Absorb scaffold for the treatment of complex bifurcation lesions. Methods and results: Ten patients treated with the Tryton stent in combination with Absorb BVS were included in the current report. Offline two- and three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (OCT) analyses ...
