    Correlation of Angiographic Late Loss With Neointimal Proliferation in Stents Evaluated by OCT and Histology in Porcine Coronary Arteries
    Objectives We aimed to evaluate the correlation of angiographic late loss (LL) with the degree of in-stent neointimal proliferation assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and histology. Background Angiographic LL is the most common endpoint used in clinical trials for the evaluation of the efficacy of drug-eluting stents (DES). However, there are few data in regards to the accuracy of angiographic LL in the evaluation of DES displaying lower degrees of neointimal proliferation. Methods A total of 49 stents (36 DES and 13 bare-metal stents) were deployed in coronary arteries of 23 domestic swine and followed up for 28 or ...
