BACKGROUND Animal models show impairment of arterial healing after drug-eluting stents (DES) compared with bare-metal stents (BMS). Virtual histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS) offers an opportunity to assess lesion morphology in vivo. METHODS We used VH-IVUS in 80 patients to assess long-term (median = 10 months) native artery vascular responses after 76 implantations of DES compared with 32 BMS. The presence of "necrotic core abutting the lumen" was evaluated at baseline and follow… CONTINUE READING
