1. The Prevalence and Determinant Factors of Intracoronary Thrombus Formation After Various Types of Drug-Eluting Stents Implantation: Optical Coherence Tomography Study

    Backgrounds: Intracoronary thrombus has been commonly shown after sirolimus eluting stent (SES) implantation in optical coherence tomography (OCT) examination. But, there was no data for other drug eluting stents (DES). Therefore, we investigated the prevalence and relating factors of intracoronary thrombus after various DES implantations using OCT. Methods: Two hundred twenty six patients [244 stents: 95 SES, 62 paclitaxel eluting (PES) and 87 zotarolimus eluting stent (ZES)] underwent OCT examination at mean 11 months (3– 66 months) after stent implantation. OCT evaluation focused on the thrombus, neointimal coverage and malapposition at each strut. The baseline, angiographic and OCT findings were ...
