Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE): Death, Q-wave and non-Q wave Myocardial Infarction, Target Lesion Revascularization (main branch and side branch) including PTCA and CABG at 6 months (180 days). [ Time Frame: 180 days and one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Acute ischemic, hemorrhagic and vascular complications. [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Target Vessel Failure (TVF) rate (Death, Q-wave and non-Q-wave Myocardial Infarction and Target Vessel Revascularization (TVR) including PTCA and CABG at one month (30 days) and six months (180 days) follow up. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Acute success of stent delivery, deployment, and post dilatation. [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to assess the performance of the Abbott Vascular MULTI-LINK FRONTIER Coronary Bifurcation Stent System (CBSS) with one and six months clinical outcomes, when used for bifurcation de novo or restenotic lesion treatment. The device allows for a stent to be implanted in the main branch and simultaneous preservation and access of the side branch for balloon dilatation or stenting when indicated.


Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Other lesions in different epicardial vessels must be successfully treated prior to bifurcation procedure.
  • Native parent vessel suitable to receive at least a 2.5mm x 18mm FRONTIER stent (>2.5mm and <4.0mm diameter with a side branch of >2.0mm) with a lesion length <15mm determined by visual assessment .
  • Target main branch vessel must be a major epicardial native vessel.
  • Appropriate lesion morphology.
  • Target lesion is restenosis following original treatment by PTCA only (no in-stent restenosis).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Estimated artery reference diameter <2.5mm
  • Patients with diffuse disease defined as long segments of abnormal vessel without interposed areas of normal vessel
  • Target lesion contains thrombus.
  • Target lesion is aorto-ostial or left main stem location.
  • Untreated lesion >50% diameter stenosis proximal or distal to target lesion after the planned target lesion intervention.
  • Patients with a contraindication for anti-platelet / anti-coagulation therapy.
  • Target lesion distal to previously placed stents.
  • Fibrotic or calcified lesions that cannot be pre-dilated.
