Predictors of long-term outcome after crush stenting of coronary bifurcation lesions: importance of the bifurcation angle.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that the bifurcation angle (BA) may affect the outcome of crush stenting (CS) of bifurcation lesions and thus set out to determine the effect of the BA on outcome of patients undergoing coronary bifurcation CS. METHODS: Of 538 bifurcation PCI cases performed between November 2003 and March 2005, 133 were performed using CS (n = 56), balloon CS (n = 71), or reverse CS (n = 6). Patients were divided into low-angle and high-angle groups using the median BA as the cut...
