We occasionally encountered difficult cases of balloon and stent delivery to the distal lesion because of narrow stent strut, severe calcification, or tortuosity of the proximal section. We describe a new technique to deliver balloon, stent, and guiding catheter to the distal lesion using a distal balloon deflation. This technique offers a potential alternative for cases in which the delivery of balloon and stent is difficult.
