    Comparison of Neointimal Coverage of Sirolimus-Eluting Stents and Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents Using Optical Coherence Tomography at 9 Months After Implantation

    The differences between using Sirolimus-eluting stents (SESs) and Paclitaxel-eluting stents (PESs) in the vascular response at 9 months after implantation were examined with optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and Results: OCT was carried out in 33 SESs [33 patients, 19 with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and 14 with stable angina pectoris (SAP)] and 27 PESs (27 patients, 15 with ACS and 12 with SAP) at 9 months after stent implantation. Stent strut coverage and apposition at each strut were evaluated. The frequency of uncovered struts was significantly higher in SES (12.5±15.2 vs 4.9±7.9 %, P ...
