Coronary bifurcations – a type of coronary artery narrowing - are best treated with Culotte stenting as opposed to T-and-protrusion (TAP) stenting, when there is a need for side-branch stenting, according to the BBKII trial presented yesterday. The trial, published simultaneously in the European Heart Journal, represents the first ever head-to-head comparison of the two most commonly used techniques in side branch stenting with anatomy considered suitable for both techniques.
