CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSAdvocates for provisional stenting:in a French Registry with 291 pts with left main stenosis whereprovisional side branch stenting was the default technique• Stenting on the side branch was performed in 66% ofpts. with bifurcation lesions• Lesson: Despite an attempt to minimize side branchstenting the implantation of a second stent was themost frequently used approach in bifurcation lesionswhen the side branch was sufficiently important anddiseased at it ostium

CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSThis lesion has a high probability to be treated with 1 stent

CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSAn important information which is missingin all classifications about bifurcationslesions is the extent of disease on theside branchFocal lesions in the side branch: ProvisionalLong lesions on the side branch: 2 stents

CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSApproach to Bifurcational Lesions including LMThe bifurcation is a True Bifurcation(significant stenosis on the MB and SB)NoYesProvisional SB stentingNoThe SB is suitable for stentingYesStent on MBThe disease on the SB extends formore than 3 mm from the ostium ofthe side branch:NoYesProvisional SB stentingElective implantation of twostents (MB and SB)

CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSBifurcation stenting in any bifurcation(including Left Main)123In Milan Experience use of double stent in distal ULMbifurcation is 55.8%(100/179 Distal LM – 207 pts total)In Multicentric Registry the same use is 49.4%(276/559 Distal LM – 731 pts total)In CACTUS Study, non left main bifurcations, , the useof 2 stents in provisional arm was 31%(173 pts)

CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSAnother example:Provisional could be Ok2 Stents better

CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSWhen two stents are implantedan optimal result needs to be verifiedwith IVUS on the main branchand on the side branch

CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSExperience with bifurcation lesions in Milanin different time periodsA more careful technique led to better results !TLR rates have decreased with similar rates of angiographic follow-up

CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSWhy have interventionalists quicklyembraced a provisional strategy forbifurcations(including Left Main)123Interventionalist are “lazy” and a provisional strategy iseasier – dont want to spend the time and effort tooptimzie results with a two-stent strategyClinical trials, mostly underpowered and pooorly devised,have not shown a clear advantage for the two-stentstrategyThe techniques for a two stent strategy are toocomplex and dedicated bifurcation stents have been adisappointment thusfar

CENTROCUORECOLUMBUSConclusions• LM bifurcation vs. other bifurcations• Consider the importance of the SB: notevery SB needs treatment and not everySB needs optimal result• If you need 2 stents, elective isbetter than provisional and patientswill have good outcomes provided anoptimal result has been achieved
