CONCLUSION

  • When used in conjunction with a DES, the Tryton stent is associated with good clinical outcome and low restenosis rate
  • These preliminary IVUS results show:
    • Complete coverage of side branch ostium
    • Complete stent expansion
    • Large final area
    • High symmetry (Dmin/Dmax) of the Tryton stent
  • This may contribute to the low restenosis observed in Tryton I
  • These preliminary data suggest that the Tryton stent approach provides a reliable and reproducible strategy to stent the SB and its origin
