BACKGROUND We investigated the usefulness of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to evaluate vessel response after stent implantation by comparing with that of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). METHODS AND RESULTS Eighteen cases undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) who provided consent for both IVUS and OCT usage pre- and post-PCI procedure were enrolled. The lumen area at the distal site of the culprit lesion was smaller on OCT images than on IVUS images due to proximal vessel… CONTINUE READING
