Figure 2: Illustration of the Double kiss-crush technique: Wiring and predilatation of both vessels. (a) Stenting of the side branch with 2–3 mm protrusion into the main branch (b) Balloon inflation of the MB crushing the side branch stent. (c) Rewiring the side branch through proximal stent struts and high pressure dilatation with noncompliant balloon. (d) First mini kissing balloon inflation (e) Implantation of the main branch stent followed by proximal optimization technique (f). Second rewiring of the side branch through the proximal stent cell followed by high pressure balloon dilatation with noncompliant balloon (g) Final mini kissing balloon inflation followed by re-proximal optimization technique
