    Prospective evaluation of drug eluting self‐apposing stent for the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery disease: 1‐year results of the TRUNC study

    Objectives To assess long‐term safety and efficacy of the Xposition S self‐apposing stent in the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) disease. Background Percutaneous intervention with stents has emerged as a valid alternative to surgical revascularization to treat ULMCA disease. Conventional balloon‐expandable stents face technical challenges, particularly in large left main diameter requiring extensive optimization and side branch access in distal bifurcation. Xposition S allows for optimal apposition, bridging diameter differences, and allows expansion to vessel diameters up to 6.0 mm. Methods Between June 2016 and July 2017, 205 patients were enrolled in this ...
