coronary artery disease bifurcation drug-eluting balloon angiographic follow-up Abstract
Aims: Percutaneous coronary interventions for bifurcation lesions are often complex and associated with an unsatisfactory result. The aim of this first-in-man, observational study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of a paclitaxel-eluting balloon in these lesions.
Methods and results: Twenty-eight patients presenting significant coronary bifurcational lesions of the left coronary artery were studied. The main branch (MB) and the side branch (SB) were dilated with a drug-eluting balloon (DEB; SeQuent® Please balloon catheter , 3µg paclitaxel/mm2 balloon surface). An open-cell bare-metal stent (BMS; Coroflex®) was then deployed in ...
