    Strut apposition after coronary stent implantation visualised with optical coherence tomography
    Aim: To describe different patterns of stent strut apposition, as visualized with Optical Coherence Tomography. Conclusion: For a detailed analysis of strut apposition with OCT, we reconstructed strut thickness and estimated stent- and vessel wall areas. With this method, we found four types of strut apposition, where pseudoapposed struts constitute a type of struts not previously described. The clinical importance of pseudoapposed struts remains to be settled.
