An optimal angiographic viewing angle is critical for correct diagnosis and intervention in coronary bifurcation lesion percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). The current study aims at validating a dedicated software tool (MEDIS, Leiden, The Netherlands) that will improve the selection of the best viewing angle.

Coronary Bifurcation Lesion

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Bifurcation Optimal Viewing Angle Selection Study

Further study details as provided by University Hospital, Gasthuisberg:

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: March 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
In patients undergoing coronary angiography, those with an angiographically significant bifurcation lesion will be identified. A total of 50 patients will be selected. After diagnostic angiography, optimal viewing angles for the bifurcation lesion will be calculated using the dedicated Medis (Leiden, the Netherlands) software.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient older than 18 years of age
  • Informed consent available

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Hemodynamic unstability (cardiogenic shock, life-threatening arrhythmias, inotropic support)
  • Impaired renal function (serum creatinine > 2.0 mg/dl)
