Portuguese term or phrase: com kissing do TC (5º dia de evoluçao) sem stents com KK II
The whole sentence reads:
PTCA com balão da Cx proximal com kissing do TC sem stents (5º dia de evolução) com KK II.
I assume this means that PTCA was performed (with a balloon) on the proximal segment of the circumflex artery, 5 days after the event, without stents but with KK II. However, a) I have no idea what KK II is and b) I don't really understand the kissing in the common trunk part. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
