    Vascular healing in high-bleeding-risk patients at 3-month after everolimus-eluting stent versus biolimus A9-coated stent implantation: insights from analysis of optical coherence tomography and coronary angioscopy

    The prevalence of high-bleeding-risk (HBR) patients who undergo coronary stenting has been reported as 20–40%. This study sought to assess vascular healing in HBR patients by coronary angioscopy (CAS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT). We prospectively analyzed 38 HBR patients with coronary artery disease who successfully underwent everolimus-eluting stent (EES) implantation (20 patients, 23 lesions) or drug-coated stent (DCS) implantation (18 patients, 18 lesions). Follow-up coronary angiography, CAS, and OCT were planned at 3 months after the procedure. The clinical characteristics and inclusion criteria of HBR were comparable between groups. CAS analysis showed that mean yellow color grade was ...
