We describe a case of apparent perforation during kissing balloon angioplasty of a bifurcation lesion. There was no evidence of perforation on follow-up angiography or via intravascular ultrasound. Possible etiologies include minimal perforation that immediately sealed postdeflation or forced contrast into the microvascular bed via a proximal side branch.
- In-stent restenosis
