Abstract
Coronary stents are commercially available in many different types and are already successfully used. In case of a stenosis in a bifurcated coronary region, the otherwise usually uncomplicated and safe treatment still causes some problems [1]. In the introduced research project different tubular and bifurcated stent structures have been implemented, using a variation braiding machine, which enables the fully automatic production of complex, if required bifurcated braided structures. Additionally an implanting concept for bifurcated areas has been devised to enable a safe and quick interventional therapy.
