    The impact of three-dimensional optical coherence tomography and kissing-balloon inflation for stent implantation to bifurcation lesion

    The rates of restenosis and stent thrombosis after the therapeutic stent deployment for bifurcation lesions are still comparably high after the introduction of the new-generation drug-eluting stents (DESs), because of the various factors including their morphology. We experienced a case of a successful percutaneous coronary intervention using three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D OCT) with a single stent deployment to a bifurcation lesion of the left anterior descending artery (LAD) and left circumflex artery (LCx) with a following kissing-balloon inflation (KBI). The 3D OCT, after the inflation of the jailed ostium of the LCx following the stent deployment to the LAD ...
