Effect of the endothelial shear stress patterns on neointimal proliferation following drug-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold implantation: an optical coherence tomography study.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES This study sought to investigate the effect of endothelial shear stress (ESS) on neointimal formation following an Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) implantation. BACKGROUND Cumulative evidence, derived from intravascular ultrasound-based studies, has demonstrated a strong association… (More)
