    Neointimal tissue characteristics following sirolimus-eluting stent implantation: OCT quantitative tissue property analysis

    The neointimal tissue characteristics inside sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) were evaluated by optical coherence tomography (OCT) according to follow-up duration. One hundred and thirty-three Optical coherence tomography was performed in 96 patients with 143 SES which were retrospectively included and divided into 2 groups according to follow-up duration: Group 1, 24 months (35 stents in 25 patients). The neointimal tissue coverage pattern and characteristics were studied using a new OCT analysis system which can quantitatively analyze tissue property by measuring attenuation, backscatter and signal intensity in the region of interest. Using these parameters, a multivariable logistic regression model was constructed to ...
