    Different vessel response between chronic total occlusions and non-CTO lesion after Sirolimus-eluting stent implantation: a serial optical coherence tomography study
    Objectives To investigate the neointimal coverage and malapposition of sirolimus-eluting stent in treatment of CTOs and non-CTO lesions (including lipid-rich plaque and non-lipid-rich plaque) by optical coherence tomography. Methods We enrolled 64 patients (CTO: n=29 stents/21 patients, lipid-rich plaque: n=33 stents/26 patients, and non-lipid-rich plaque: n=21 stents/17 patients) with 68 target vessels and examined lesion characteristics by using OCT at pre- and post-SES implantation and 6 months follow-up. Lipid rich plaque was defined as the plaque with lipid content in ≥2 quadrants. Non-lipid-rich plaque consists of fibrous, fibrocalcific plaque, and lipid plaque with less ...
