    Successful treatment of a long tapered lesion with two overlapping ABSORB® bioresorbable vascular scaffolds of different diameters: Evaluation by three-dimensional optical coherence tomography

    A 53-year-old male patient with a history of diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidemia presented with stable angina pectoris. Coronary angiography showed a long lesion extending from the proximal to the mid left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD), approximately 40mm in length, with proximal and distal reference diameters of 3.5mm and 2.5mm by visual estimation, and 3.6mm and 2.8mm respectively on online analysis of quantitative coronary angiography. Pre-dilatation with a 2.5×20mm compliant balloon at 10atmospheres (atm) was followed by deployment of two overlapping ABSORB (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, USA) bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS). In the mid ...
