BACKGROUND Percutaneous coronary intervention with stent placement for the treatment of patients with cardiac allograft vasculopathy is common, but data regarding stent behavior in this setting is lacking. OBJECTIVES We investigated mechanisms and potential differences in stent expansion among transplant patients vs. patients with native coronary artery atherosclerotic disease ("controls"). METHODS We compared pre- and poststent intravascular ultrasound in 12 transplant patients (17 lesions… CONTINUE READING
