Table 3 Medina classification

From: Treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions: stent-covering of the side branch with and without PCI of the side branch: a retrospective analysis of all consecutive patients

  Covering SB without PCI SB (group A) * Covering SB + PCI SB (group B) *
Medina classification 1-1-1 (no, percent) 12 (20.0%) 2 (6.5%)
Medina classification 1-1-0 (no, percent) 9 (15.0%) 4 (12.9%)
Medina classification 1-0-1 (no, percent) 5 (8.3%) 8 (25.8%)
Medina classification 0-1-1 (no, percent) 1 (1.7%) 3 (9.7%)
Medina classification 1-0-0 (no, percent) 18 (30.0%) 9 (29.0%)
Medina classification 0-1-0 (no, percent) 14 (23.3%) 5 (16.1%)
Medina classification 0-0-1 (no, percent) 1 (1.7%) 0 (0.0%)
Total 60 (100%) 31 (100%)
  1. * Four patients of group A could not be classified due to complete occlusion of the target vessel in patients with STEMI during non-elective PCI. After restoration of blood flow (thrombectomy or PCI using a undersized balloon) a significant bifurcation lesion was identified.
  2. * Three patients of group B could not be classified due to complete occlusion of the target vessel in patients with STEMI during non-elective PCI. After restoration of blood flow (thrombectomy or PCI using a undersized balloon) a significant bifurcation lesion was identified.
