There is much discussion in the field of interventional cardiovascular therapy as to what is the best approach to treating coronary bifurcation lesions. Many advocate for provisional stenting, stenting of the main vessel with subsequent stenting of the side branch as needed, while some advocate for elective double stenting of both branches.
