Abstract

Coronary artery bifurcation lesions pose a particular challenge in the field of interventional cardiology. Coronary bifurcation interventions are associated with higher rate of short- and long-term complications. There are many coronary artery bifurcation lesion classifications published in the literature. The goal of this article is to update and review current schemes of coronary artery bifurcation lesion classifications and interventional techniques.
