    Combined use of optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound imaging for the evaluation of stent thrombosis

    Stent thrombosis (ST) represents the most feared complication after the percutaneous treatment of a coronary stenosis, usually involving very serious or fatal consequences for the patient. The interest in ST was initiated after the first longitudinal follow-up of drug-eluting stents (DES), which dramatically decrease the rate of restenosis. Further investigation revealed that ST is not a class effect, also affecting bare metal stents, and that several factors are potentially implicated in the physiopathology of ST [1]. While subacute thrombosis seem to be more related to mechanical problems during deployment, late and very late ST described in DES have been associated ...
