Background/purpose: The optimal position of the balloon distal radio-opaque marker during the post optimization technique (POT) remains debated. We analyzed three potential different balloon positions for the final POT in two different two-stenting techniques, to compare the hemodynamic effects in terms of wall shear stress (WSS) in patients with complex left main (LM) coronary bifurcation. Methods/materials: We reconstructed the patient-specific coronary bifurcation anatomy using the coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) data of 8 consecutive patients (6 males, mean age 68.2± 18.6 years) affected by complex LM bifurcation disease. Subsequently a virtual bench test was performed in each patient using two different double stenting techniques represented by the DK and Nano crush using the reconstruction of Orsiro stents (Biotronik IC, Bulack, Switzerland). Results: A significant reduction in the mean WSS values in all the lesion's sites was observed when the final POT was performed 1 mm distally the carina cut plane in both techniques. Moreover, a significant improvement in the mean WSS values of the entire SB (e.g. LCX) was obtained performing the POT 1 mm distally to the carina cut plane. The proximal POT resulted in larger area of lower WSS values at the carina using both the Nano crush and the DK crush techniques. Conclusions: In patients with complex LM bifurcation disease the use of a final POT performed 1 mm distally to the carina cut plane might results in more favorable WSS patterns (i.e. higher WSS values) along all stented segments and, especially, along the entire LCX lesions.
