    Incidence and significance of the pseudo stent strut in optical coherence tomography analysis for coronary artery stents
    Introduction: Quantitative optical coherence tomography (OCT) analysis is about to be relevant for the correct assessment of incomplete stent apposition which can result to late stent thrombosis. Nevertheless, the pseudo stent struts (PS), which show the strong signal same as the true strut, are sometimes seen at odd positions in the lumen and locate at the same distance from the image wire as a true strut. PS may be produced by the distorted beam and interfere accurate analysis. Our aim was to investigate the incidence of PS. Methods: We created a simple phantom model (2.5 mm-coronary artery stent apposed ...
