    Early vascular healing with biodegradable polymer coated sirolimus-eluting coronary stent implantation: assessed by optical coherence tomography results at 4-month follow-up

    Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the strut apposition and neointimal coverage of Supralimus-Core stent struts at 4 months after implantation using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods: The Supralimus-Core OCT study is a retrospective, single-center study evaluating strut apposition and neointimal coverage with OCT at 4 months after stent implantation. A total of 12 patients, who had 15 stents implanted were included in the study. The OCT was obtained using a C7-XR FD-OCT (frequency-domain OCT) intravascular imaging system. Strut apposition, neointimal hyperplasia (NIH) thickness and stent coverage on each stent strut were evaluated. Results: A total of ...
