Abstract

We present a case of a left anterior descending artery/diagonal branch bifurcation successfully treated with a dedicated 2-stent technique utilizing bioresorbable vascular scaffolds, where the bifurcation angle did not strictly allow a T-stenting approach. We also propose a strategy to avoid or reduce scaffold overlap in the main branch, especially important in view of the bulkier size of these novel devices.
