Enzo Borghi, Anthony Rickards: Bifurcated endovascular stents and method and apparatus for their placement. Ave Galway, Sterne Kessler Goldstein & Fox P L L C, May 2, 2000: US06056775 (218 worldwide citation)

A bifurcated endovascular stent is formed from a pair of individual tubular component stents that can be placed independently in sequence in the branched region of a body vessel to form the bifurcated stent in situ. The first placed component stent includes a side opening and may be placed to extend ...
