A major concern for bifurcation intervention is to keep patency of a significant side branch (SB). While the aggressive strategy of stenting in SB for all bifurcations is inappropriate, the prevalent strategy of stenting in main vessel (MV) and provisionally stenting in SB leads to an SB occlusion rate of 6.1%–18% as previously reported , which suggests us that some bifurcation lesions are vulnerable to SB occlusion if treated with the provisional strategy. Identifying angiographic characteristics related with SB occlusion can help decision‐making in interventional strategy.The Visual estimation for Risk prEdiction of Side branch OccLusion in coronary bifurcation intervention (V‐RESOLVE) score was developed by Dou et al. to predict the risk of SB occlusion after MV stenting in coronary bifurcation lesions . The score system comprises six independent visually estimated risk predictors for SB occlusion, including four preprocedural angiographic predictors (plaque distribution at the bifurcation, diameter stenosis of bifurcation core, bifurcation angle, and
