Based on case reports and in vitro testing ABSORB BVS placement in coronary bifurcation lesions seems to be feasible. The potential theoretical advantage of BVS of better access to side branches due to the disappearance over time of obstructing struts needs to be confirmed. Complex multiple BVS-bifurcation constructions, such as Culotte or Crush, are unattractive due to mechanical properties and strut size of currently available devices. Further research should be performed to detect the optimal bifurcation stenting procedure for this novel devices.
