    Head-to-head comparison of early vessel healing by optical coherence tomography after implantation of different stents in the same patient
    Objectives: Strut coverage represents the most powerful morphometric predictor of stent thrombosis and the best surrogate indicator of endothelization. The aim of this study was to get new insights on temporal patterns of vessel healing after stenting with different types of stent. Methods: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used to investigate the early strut coverage of lesions treated with CATANIA (CAT) stent, drug-eluting stent (DES) or cobalt-chromium bare metal stent (BMS). Two cohorts of 10 and 24 patients underwent OCT follow-up at 7-10 and 28-32 days after stenting, respectively. In each cohort, patients were randomly assigned to receive a CAT ...
