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.
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...
Intermittent arm cuff inflation reduces the extent of heart muscle injury at the time of cardiovascular injury. The intervention is known as remote ischaemic conditioning (RIC) however the...
Paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) coronary angioplasty is an alternative treatment for de-novo coronary lesions in small vessels. This study with the new Essential PCB aimed to evaluate early and mid-te...

Barriers to successful left ventricular lead placement within the coronary venous anatomy may include focal stenoses, thromboses, phrenic nerve stimulation, vessel tortuosity, small vessel caliber, no...
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...
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.
