Device: AngioSculpt
The AngioSculpt Scoring Balloon Catheter is a standard balloon dilatation catheter with a scoring balloon near the distal tip

Detailed Description:
The purpose of the AngioSculpt® Scoring Balloon Catheter For Bifurcation Coronary lesions (ABC registry) is to demonstrate the acute procedural success, device performance and long term outcome associated with use of the AngioSculpt Scoring Balloon Catheter (AngioScore, Inc., Fremont, CA) for lesion preparation in the treatment of bifurcation lesions in native coronary arteries

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with significant (≥ 50% diameter stenosis) native coronary artery disease involving a bifurcation (Medina class (x,x,1)).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Concomitant use of Rotablator, Cutting Balloon, or investigational coronary devices.
  • Additional planned coronary interventions for a non-target lesion within 30 days of the study procedure.
