    Multiple Inter-strut Hollow, a Unique Finding of Optical Coherence Tomography After Sirolimus Eluting Stent Implantation: The Prevalence and Clinical Characteristics
    Background: It has been reported that Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) revealed cavities formation between and outside of the stent strut, Multiple Inter-strut Hollow (MIH) after Sirorimus eluting stent (SES) implantation. However, the incidence and the clinical characteristics of MIH are unknown. Methods: We analyzed the findings of OCT, in 60 cases with in-stent restenosis (ISR) after SES (n=52) and bare metal stent (BMS) (n=8) implantation. MIH was defined as multiple cavity formation which maximum depth was over 0.3mm between and outside of the stent strut in OCT. Furthermore, we examined the relation between the maximum depth of ...
