There is much discussion in the field of interventional cardiovascular therapy as to what is the best approach to treating coronary bifurcation lesions. Many advocate for provisional stenting, stenting of the main vessel with subsequent stenting of the side branch as needed, while some advocate for elective double stenting of both branches. This book is the first of its kind to take a unique approach to this issue by considering the management of bifurcation lesions in the context of the individual patient’s bifurcation anatomy. A highly-illustrated, evidence-based and practical guide, this text offers a patient-centered outlook on the technical decision making in the treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions.
