European Bifurcation Club 2019
Contemporary bifurcation treatment practice: what we can learn from a large global registry – e-Ultimaster:
4 continents, 50 countries, 376 sites Study enrolment completed, follow-up ongoing.
> 37,000 patients enrolled
1-year follow-up or death n=32,468 patients
Patient treated in bifurcation n=4,077 patients
CLINICAL FOLLOW-UP: 0d, 3m & 1y
An independent Clinical Event Committee reviewed and adjudicated all endpoint- related serious adverse events.
• Provisional stenting is the dominant strategy with an excellent midterm outcome when using a last-generation DES (Ultimaster)
• POT is associated with a strong benefit whatever the stenting technique
• When a SB intervention is done, KBT is associated with better outcome than SB ballooning
• Two-stent technique is no longer associated with a worse outcome with a benefit of KBT on TV-MI in this specific situation
