    Serial optical coherence tomography imaging of the “black-hole” phenomenon by intravascular ultrasound following sirolimus-eluting stent implantation

    A 60-year-old man underwent sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) implantatoni.  At two months, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) images showed homogenous echolucent appearance within the stent, recognized as a"black-hole" phenomeon.  Optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of the correspoinding segment demonstrated a layered structure composed of think inner layers with high-intensity signals and outer layers with low-intensity signals.
