    Plaque mOrphology iMpact on Side Branch Occlusion at oPtical Coherence Tomography Evaluation in Percutaneous Coronary Interventions

    Despite recent advances in interventional cardiology, bifurcation coronary artery stenoses (which account for 15-20% of all coronary lesions treated by PCI), remain a challenge for PCI operators with higher rates of failure, in-stent restenosis, stent thrombosis, and recurrent clinical events, when compared to simple non-bifurcation lesions. POMPEI trial is a prospective observational study. We aim to investigate the impact of morphological plaque characteristics assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) on the risk of developing side branch occlusion (SBO) in bifurcation PCI. A total of 27 patients undergoing bifurcation PCI will be recruited into the trial. PCI will be performed according ...
