Cardiovascular disease continues to be a giant killer across the globe with the prevalence of coronary artery disease remaining unabated.Interventional cardiology has grown leaps and bounds in the last 20 years with revolutionary advancements in the bio-engineering and technical expertise,thus throwing up enduring challenges to interventionists to keep themselves updated. Dedicated bifurcation stent is one such innovative vignette which has caught the attention of many interventional cardiologists aspiring to be leaders in this field. The concept is unique and the technique is imposing. The growing numbers of different designs under research is vindictive of its future. More trial data are required and more importantly the long learning curve in the real life practice would pose a delay before they become the default treatment option in true bifurcation lesions. This book depicts the current concepts of bifurcation stenting, the design and techniques of different dedicated bifurcation stents including the drug eluting variants. We sincerely hope this comprehensive review would help to update the interventional cardiologists with special interest in bifurcation stenting.
