AIMS To use optical coherence tomography (OCT) to evaluate the time course, risk factors, and clinical implication of in-stent neoatherosclerosis. METHODS AND RESULTS The neointimal characteristics of 152 lesions, 128 drug-eluting stents (DESs) and 24 bare metal stents (BMSs), with >50% percent cross-sectional area (CSA) neointimal stenosis were evaluated. Neoatherosclerosis was defined as neointima with presence of lipid or calcification. Neoatherosclerosis was observed in 54 lesions (35.5… CONTINUE READING
