Author: Vladimir Dzavik, MD, PhD, FRCPC, FACC, FAHA, FSCAI, Toronto General Hospital, Canada

Disclosures:

A modified Balloon Crush Approach Improves Side Branch Access and Side Branch Stent Apposition during Crush Stenting of Coronary Bifurcation Lesions

Summary: 

  • The DK crush technique is a great technique but should not be the default crush technique in all cases and for all operators when a planned 2-stent technique is planned
  • Other crush techniques may provide results that are comparable.
  • Head-to-head studies are needed
