The study aims to assess whether a SIMPLE or a COMPLEX strategy is best for the treatment of coronary bifurcation stenoses.
500 patients will be randomised to either a SIMPLE strategy (provisional T stenting) or a COMPLEX strategy (crush or culotte stenting) with clinical follow-up at 9 months.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study aims to assess the potential for ischaemic peri-conditioning (IP) in elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) patients to attenuate ischaemia in an animal model of myoc...
To compare the efficacy of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in patients with multiple vessel coronary heart disease.
Myocardial protection is of crucial importance for surgical coronary revascularization in patients with ischaemic heart diseases. The investigators proposed loop isolation-based uploading ...
This is a single center, retrospective, observational cohort study to assess the safety and efficacy of drug coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty in all forms of coronary artery disease. The I...
Angioplasty is a procedure which opens blocked heart arteries using balloons and/or stents. Most U.S. states and all national heart organizations require that angioplasty be done only at h...
Psychological symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, and stress, are a risk factor for the development as well as aggravation of ischaemic heart diseases (IHD). Although women report more psychologica...
The aim of this review was to develop a deeper knowledge of the physiology of coronary blood flow and coronary flow reserve in young patients with congenital heart disease and inflammatory diseases.
Pediatric coronary artery bypass surgery (PCABS) for congenital heart disease has become increasingly important in infants and children undergoing modern cardiac surgery, because of its life-saving po...
Robotic-assisted coronary angioplasty has been utilized to decrease radiation exposure to cardiologists, and to diminish risk of orthopedic and ergonomic injuries caused by wearing heavy lead during l...
Coronary revascularization for coronary artery disease dates to the introduction of coronary bypass surgery by Favaloro in 1967 and coronary angioplasty by Gruentzig in 1977 and first published in 196...
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
