1. Neointimal coverage of sirolimus-eluting stents 6 months and 12 months after implantation: evaluation by optical coherence tomography

    Background  Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new imaging modality with resolution of approximately 10 μm and can be employed to visualize intracoronary characteristics. Sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) are susceptible to late thrombosis due to delayed re-endothelialization over the stent struts, which may result in acute myocardial infarction or death. This study was designed to evaluate the re-endothelialization and neointimal coverage of SES with OCT 6 months and 12 months after implantat
