    A look into stent‐related thrombus‐burden: Bivalirudin versus heparin

    Use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) adds an assessment of thrombus burden remaining on stents after PCI for acute coronary syndromes. Potential variations in stent‐related thrombus burden can be documented by OCT as a function of peri‐procedural pharmacology supporting the use of OCT in future hypothesis testing. Bivalirudin remains a reliable and expensive alternative to heparin in cases of HIT or patients at high bleeding risk during transfemoral PCI.
