    Mechanisms of Non-Fatal Stent-Related Myocardial Infarction Late Following Coronary Stenting With Drug-Eluting Stents and Bare Metal Stents – Insights From Optical Coherence Tomography –

    A prospective observational study using optical coherence tomography (OCT) of patients with myocardial infarction (MI), late following drug-eluting (DES) or bare metal stent (BMS) implantation, when the stented segment was considered culprit. Methods and Results: Seventeen patients (58.9±8.3 years; 7 DES, 10 BMS) with MI at 50 (3-180) months post-stenting. Patients with BMS sustained a MI later than patients with DES (95 (3-180) vs. 8 (3-62) months, P=0.01]; 5 (71.4%) of the DES patients demonstrated binary angiographic restenosis, in contrast to 8 (80%) with BMS (P=1.0). DES had significantly less thickness of ...
