Abstract 16660: One-year Outcomes in Patients with Unprotected Left Main Bifurcation Lesions Treated with Single Drug-Eluting Stent: Sub-Analysis from SINGLE KISS Trial
Background: The use of drug-eluting stent (DES) is associated with excellent clinical results in left main bifurcation lesions. However, there is limited angiographic and clinical follow-up data after single DES implantation with final kissing inflation (FKI) for unprotected left main bifurcation lesions.
Methods: From the prospective randomized study of SINGLE KISS trial to assess the efficacy of single stent strategy with FKI using by sirolimus- (SES) and paclitaxel-eluting stents (PES) for 800 bifurcation lesions, 207 left main bifurcation lesions were selected to evaluate one-year outcomes.
Results: The Major Adverse Cardiac Events and binary restenosis rates between two groups were similar without late loss in main branch (Table).
Conclusions: Single stent strategy with FKI using by SES and PES were similar and effective in patients with Left main bifurcation lesions.
