    In vitro flow and optical coherence tomography comparison of two bailout techniques after failed after provisional T-stenting for bifurcation percutaneous coronary interventions

    Background Provisional T-stenting with bailout side branch (SB) stenting is used to treat most coronary bifurcation stenoses . Purpose To evaluate, in vitro, two bailout side branch stenting techniques after failed provisional T-stenting. We aimed to compare flows and stent strut apposition of T And Protrusion (TAP) versus Reversed String (RS) bailout techniques using a flow simulator, optical coherence tomography (OCT), in silicon bifurcation phantoms with different angulations between branches. Methods Ten 30°-angle and ten 60°-angle silicon bifurcation phantoms were used. After performing provisional T-stenting, TAP and RS techniques were compared in 5 phantoms with 30° and 60° angles ...
