Percutaneous coronary intervention involves a wide range of complexity, from relatively straightforward Type A lesions in a C-shaped right coronary artery to much more complex anatomy. Ostial lesions and bifurcation lesions remain subsets that continue to challenge current interventional strategies and that can have increased risks of subacute closure and/or restenosis.
In this lecture, Dr. Ragosta outlines and defines many of the considerations in approaching such lesions and discusses the appropriate uses and limitations of percutaneous techniques in these lesion subsets.
