We used intravascular ultrasound to evaluate the incidence, characteristics, and clinical sequel of plaque prolapse within drug-eluting stents. The influence of stent design on plaque prolapse has not been studied. Drug-eluting stents were serially expanded, first at 14 atm and then at 20 atm, with intravascular ultrasound imaging after each inflation. The stent, lumen, and maximum plaque prolapse areas were measured. The residual lumen area and percentage of plaque prolapse burden (maximum… CONTINUE READING
