    Optical Coherence Tomography for EVERolimus Eluting STent
    Compared with bare metal stents (BMS), both paclitaxel-eluting stents (PES) and sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) significantly reduce angiographic restenosis and the need for repeat revascularization in coronary arteries across a broad range of patient and lesion types. However the increased risk of very late stent thrombosis represents a major concern for patients treated with both PES and SES. Optical coherence tomography (OCT), a new imaging technique based on the back reflection of near infrared light, enables real-time, full tomographic, in-vivo visualization of coronary vessel microstructure. Struts coverage and vessel response of drug eluting stent (DES) compared to BMS are the most ...
