Intracoronary stenting as a transcatheter treatment for bifurcation stenoses remains controversial. A novel technique of coronary bifurcation stenting is reported. A 15 mm Palmaz-Schatz stent is bent 180 degrees at its bridge articulation into a V- configuration and mounted on two balloon-catheters linked together by adhesive tape. This unified stent delivery system was used successfully in five cases of porcine coronary bifurcation stenting.
