1. Comparative Analysis of Vascular Responses Following Stent Implantation in the Lesion Wth Acute Coronary Syndrome Between Paclitaxel-Eluting and Bare-Metal Stent Using Optical Coherence Tomography

    Background: Safety and feasibility of drug-eluting stent in the lesion with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is still controversial. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution intravascular imaging modality, which is expected to visualize microscopic vascular response to coronary intervention. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the difference of vascular responses following stent implantation in the ACS lesions between paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES) and bare-metal stent (BMS) using OCT. Method: Fifty-eight ACS patients who were treated with either PES or BMS (33PESs and 25 BMSs) underwent OCT at 3 months follow-up, and 38 of them (20PESs and 18BMSs) also had ...
