Relation between poststenting peristent plaque components and late stent malapposition after drug-eluting stent implantation: virtual histology-intravascular ultrasound analysis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Impact of plaque composition on late stent malapposition (LSM) after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation has not been evaluated. METHODS We evaluated the relation between plaque components at poststenting peristent area (between external elastic membrane and stent areas) and LSM after DES implantation in 266 patients (314 native lesions… (More)
