    ComparisOn of neointimal coVerage betwEen zotaRolimus-eluting stent and everolimus-eluting stent using Optical Coherence Tomography (COVER Oct)

    Background Data on strut surface coverage of second-generation drug-eluting stents (DES) are limited. We investigated stent strut coverage of resolute zotarolimus-eluting stent (ZES-R) or everolimus-eluting stent (EES) at 9 months after implantation using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods ComparisOn of neointimal coVerage betwEen zotaRolimus-eluting stent and everolimus-eluting stent using Optical Coherence Tomography (COVER OCT) is a prospective, randomized, multicenter trial comparing ZES-R to EES using OCT at 9 months after stent implantation. The primary end point was the rate of stent strut coverage at 9 months. Results A total of 51 patients were randomized to receive either ZES-R (ZES-R group ...
