Next generation DES in bifurcation PCI

Author: Mark Spence, Consultant Cardiologist Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast



  • Investigator initiated trial, sponsored by Boston Scientific Corporation via CERC
  • We hypothesize that modern generation DES facilitate good clinical outcomes using a planned 2-stent bifurcation treatment.
    • We anticipate that bifurcation culotte stenting with modern DES platforms will demonstrate outcomes that are better than earlier results from published randomized controlled trials.
    • This study will examine outcomes for patients treated by planned culotte stenting and compare outcomes between 2 different stent platforms, the Synergy II and the Xience Xpedition DES platforms.
    • The primary outcome measures: clinical and angiographic follow-up parameters assessed at a 9-month time point.
