Summary
Brief summary
A prospective multi-center, non-randomized, single arm trial enrolling up to 60 patients with symptomatic ischemic heart disease attributable to a bifurcation lesion that is amenable to percutaneous treatment with stenting.
A bifurcation lesion must have =/> 50% stenosis in the main branch.
Trial patients may have multiple vessel disease but only a single bifurcation lesion per patient mmay be treated during the trial procedure, with no other lesions of any type treated at this time-point.
Clinical follow-up assessment will be performed at 30-days post procedure.
Patient contact for follow-up assesment will be performed at 6 months, 9 months and 12 months post-procedure
