    Serial Baseline, 12-, 24-, and 60-Month Optical Coherence Tomography Evaluation of ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction Patients Treated with Absorb Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold

    Data on long-term neointimal healing and neoatherosclerosis progression after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with implantation of everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) (ABSORB BVS 1.0, Abbott Vascular) are limited. The mechanisms underlying very late scaffold failure remain to be further elucidated. This study sought to assess healing pattern and presence of neoatherosclerosis. This was a single-center, prospective, longitudinal study with serial optical coherence tomography (OCT) assessment at baseline, 12, 24 and 60 months after PCI performed in 12 patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The median follow-up was 59 months. The diameter stenosis increased from 7.11 ...
