OBJECTIVES This study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in analyzing the neointimal response to several drug-eluting stent (DES) types by comparing OCT images acquired in vivo with corresponding histological specimens using a nondiseased porcine injury model. BACKGROUND Optical coherence tomography is emerging as a promising endovascular imaging tool for the evaluation of neointimal response after DES implantation. METHODS A total of 84 stents were… CONTINUE READING
