This report describes a technique for correct positioning of a stent in an ostial stenosis by using a second wire passed through the last cell of a stent. The anchor wire technique, first described by Szabo et al. [Szabo S, Abramowitz B, Vaitkus PT. Am J Cardiol 2005;96:212H], will facilitate precise ostial stent placement and eliminate errors of positioning inside or outside the ostial narrowing.
