Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0141677A1] An improved catheter assembly and method are provided for treating bifurcated vessels. The catheter assembly of the present invention includes tubular restraint for releasably restraining a pair of balloons during delivery and advancing a bifurcated stent through a vessel. The system is designed for repairing a main vessel and a side branch vessel forming a bifurcation, without compromising blood flow in other portions of the bifurcation, thereby allowing access to all portions of the bifurcated vessel should further interventional treatment be necessary.
