Abstract

Endovascular stents such as coronary stents can be used for the treatment of atherosclerosis. If the narrowing involves a main vessel and a side branch as well, physicians have to use bifurcation stenting technique. Bifurcation lesions constitute nearly 15 % of all percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), so the investigation of bifurcation stenting methods is very important. This article introduces a simple method to measure side branch access and related functional stent properties in the case of stent-balloon technique. With this method we can tell if bifurcation stenting is possible or not, and if so the size of theavailable access.
