dc.description.abstractSeveral studies investigated the combination of bare metal stents in the main branch and drug-eluting balloons in the side branch in bifurcation lesions, but data on the combination of drug-eluting stents and drug-eluting balloons are scarce. We aim to assess the feasibility of provisional stenting with an everolimus-eluting stent in the main branch and a paclitaxel-eluting balloon in the side branch.In this prospective, multi-center study conducted in 5 Australian sites, 35 patients with bifurcation lesions were enrolled. Angiographic and intravascular ultrasound assessments were conducted at 9 months; clinical follow-up was conducted until 12 months.The primary endpoint, late lumen loss in the side branch measured by quantitative coronary angiography, was 0.10±0.43mm. No binary restenosis was observed. One patient died; 3 myocardial infarctions (one suspected and two in non-target vessels) and one target lesion revascularization occurred. No probable or definite stent thrombosis was observed.The combination of an everolimus-eluting stent in the main branch and a paclitaxel-eluting balloon in the side branch appears to be a safe, effective and novel treatment option for bifurcation lesions.en
