OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to describe the neointimal healing on the abluminal side (ABL) of malapposed (ISA) struts and nonapposed side-branch (NASB) struts in terms of coverage by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and in comparison with the adluminal side (ADL). BACKGROUND The neointimal healing on the ABL of ISA and NASB struts has never to our knowledge been explored in vivo and could be involved in the correction of acute malapposition. The bioresorbable vascular scaffold… CONTINUE READING
