1. Accuracy of Optical Coherence Tomography in the Evaluation of Neointimal Coverage After Stent Implantation

    Objectives This study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in analyzing the neointimal response to several drug-eluting stent (DES) types by comparing OCT images acquired in vivo with corresponding histological specimens using a nondiseased porcine injury model. Background Optical coherence tomography is emerging as a promising endovascular imaging tool for the evaluation of neointimal response after DES implantation. Methods A total of 84 stents were implanted—22 ML Vision (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California), 22 Xience V (Abbott Vascular), 20 Endeavor (Medtronic, Minneapolis, Minnesota), and 20 Taxus Liberté (Boston Scientific, Natick, Massachusetts) stents—in normal porcine ...
