    Clinical Implications of Post-Stent Optical Coherence Tomographic Findings: Severe Malapposition and Cardiac Events

    Objectives This study sought to evaluate the impact of post-stent optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings, including severe malapposition, on long-term clinical outcomes. Background Suboptimal OCT findings following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are highly prevalent; however, their clinical implications remain controversial. Methods Of the patients registered in the Yonsei OCT registry, a total of 1,290 patients with 1,348 lesions, who underwent OCT immediately post-stenting, were consecutively enrolled for this study. All patients underwent implantation of drug-eluting stents. Post-stent OCT findings were assessed to identify predictors of device-oriented clinical endpoints (DoCE), including cardiac death, target vessel-related myocardial infarction (MI) or ...
