    Anatomical and functional healing after resorbable magnesium scaffold implantation in human coronary vessels: A combined optical coherence tomography and quantitative flow ratio analysis

    Background No data are currently available on the process of vessel healing and long‐term physiological results after implantation of resorbable magnesium‐made scaffold (RMS) in human coronary arteries. Objectives To investigate after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and at 12 months follow‐up (a) RMS resorption process and vessel healing, as judged by optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging; and (b) physiological result of RMS implantation evaluated by quantitative flow ratio (QFR). Methods All patients successfully treated with at least one RMS from July 2016 to August 2018 at 2 Italian centers were evaluated. All cases with OCT pullback and/or ...
