    Response to Letter Regarding Article, "Impact of Frequency-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Guidance for Optimal Coronary Stent Implantation in Comparison With Intravascular Ultrasound Guidance"

    We appreciate the valuable comments by Garcia-Garcia et al regarding our article.1 We agree with the comments on our limitations about study design especially with regard to criteria of the procedure. First, the efficacy of distal protection devices in native coronary arteries is still controversial, and criteria regarding usage of this device are not defined yet. However, we believe this device could be helpful for prevention of distal embolus in certain cases as we have sometimes experienced, and optical frequency-domain imaging (OFDI) is helpful to predict such cases. Making use of the criteria of this study, distal protection was ...
