    Comparison of Incidence and Time Course of Neoatherosclerosis Between Bare Metal Stents and Drug-Eluting Stents Using Optical Coherence Tomography

    Recent studies have reported the development of neoatherosclerosis inside stents and subsequent acute coronary syndrome secondary to disruption of neointimal hyperplasia. The aim of the study was to compare the characteristics of neointimal hyperplasia and its time course between bare metal stents (BMSs) and drug-eluting stents (DESs) using optical coherence tomography. A total of 138 stents were divided into 3 groups according to the follow-up period: early phase, <9 months (25 BMSs and 27 DESs); intermediate phase, ≥9 and <48 months (18 BMSs and 43 DESs); and delayed phase, ≥48 months (13 BMSs and 12 DESs). Optical coherence tomographic analysis ...
