    Impact of plaque morphology on intimal hyperplasia after stenting assessed by optical coherence tomography
    Objective The objective of this study was to evaluate whether the plaque morphology can affect the in-stent neointimal hyperplasia. Methods 74 patients (93 stents) with OCT post-stent implantation were included in the study. Cross-sectional OCT images were analysed at 1-mm intervals (every 15 frames), and 302 cross-sectional images with lipid or calcific lesions under the stent struts were selected. The struts in these sections were divided into four groups according to the plaque conditions under the struts: group 1—struts on the normal vessel, group 2—on the fibrotic lesion, group 3—on the calcific lesion, group 4—on the ...
