- The ABS bifurcation stenting system is a novel platform designed to reproducibly permit stenting in bifurcation lesions regardless of branch angulation or plaque location, in a short and simple procedure.
This first-in-human implant study provides preliminary evidence of feasibility and short- term efficacy. Additional long-term and larger scale studies are needed to further validate this unique technology.
