Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Target vessel failure (TVF) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    composite of cardiac death, myocardial infarction, target vessel revascularization


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Cardiac death [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    All deaths were considered cardiac unless a definite non-cardiac cause could be established.

  • Myocardial infarction (MI) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    MI was defined as elevated cardiac enzymes (troponin or MB fraction of creatine kinase, CK-MB) more than the upper limit of the normal value with ischemic symptoms or electrocardiography findings indicative of ischemia that was not related to the index procedure.

  • Target vessel revascularization (TVR) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    TVR was repeat revascularization of the target vessel by PCI or bypass graft surgery.

  • Target lesion revascularization (TLR) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    TLR was defined as repeat PCI of the lesion within 5 mm of stent deployment or bypass graft surgery of the target vessel.

  • Stent thrombosis [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Stent thrombosis was assessed based on the definitions of the Academic Research Consortium as definite, probable, or possible stent thrombosis.

  • Periprocedural enzyme elevation [ Time Frame: during the hospitalization ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Periprocedural enzyme elevation was defined as a rise in CK-MB ≥3 times the upper normal limit after the index procedure.

  • the incidence of binary angiographic restenosis in the main branch and side branch [ Time Frame: 9 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    as measured by 9-month quantitative coronary analysis

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Conservative strategy Procedure: Conservative strategy
  • Main vessel stenting was performed.
  • Side branch ballooning and kissing ballooning were done if Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) flow <3 in the side branch after main vessel stenting in non-left main bifurcation (non-LM) subgroup, and diameter stenosis (DS) >75% in LM subgroup.
  • Side branch stenting was performed if TIMI flow <3 in the Side branch after ballooning in non-LM subgroup, and DS >50% or dissection in the Side branch after ballooning in LM subgroup.
Experimental: Aggressive strategy Procedure: Aggressive strategy
  • Main vessel was performed.
  • Side branch ballooning and kissing ballooning were done if DS >75% in the side branch after main vessel stenting in non-LM subgroup, and DS >50% in LM subgroup.
  • Side branch stenting was performed if DS >50% in the side branch after ballooning in non-LM subgroup, and DS >30% or dissection in the side branch after ballooning in LM subgroup.

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relative efficacy and safety of conservative strategy compared to aggressive strategy for side branch stenting in coronary bifurcation lesion.
