Abstract

None of the currently used interventional techniques yield durable results for coronary bifurcation lesions. We successfully treated a patient with unprotected left main bifurcation disease using a side balloon stent technique with a drug-eluting stent (DES). This technique produced excellent immediate and long-term results.
