Study aims: to compare two intervention strategies for bifurcation treatment - provisional T-stenting (PTS) with drug-eluting stent (sirolimus eluting), with kissing balloon inflation at the end of procedure - the best treatment strategy at the moment, with stenting of bifurcation lesions with dedicated bifurcation drug-eluting stent BiOSS Lym.
