    Optical coherence tomography-based assessment of bifurcation stenting using the Axxess™ Biolimus A9™-eluting stent system

    Bifurcation lesions are associated with increased procedural complications and worse long-term outcome. Multiple techniques are available, including the dedicated drug-eluting Axxess™ stent system (Biosensors International Ltd., Singapore, Singapore), providing complete bifurcation support without covering the carina. Low rates of restenosis in both main vessel (MV) and side branch (SB) have been demonstrated. High-resolution imaging techniques such as intravascular optical coherence tomography (IV-OCT) may help the positioning and implantation of the Axxess device, as angiographic guidance alone may be insufficient. A Medina 1,1,1 bifurcation lesion was treated using the Axxess device and BioMatrix™ stents (Biosensors International Ltd.) in the ...
