    Fusion of optical coherence tomographic and angiographic data for more accurate evaluation of the endothelial shear stress patterns and neointimal distribution after bioresorbable scaffold implantation: comparison with intravascular ultrasound-derived rec

    Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-based reconstructions have been traditionally used to examine the effect of endothelial shear stress (ESS) on neointimal formation. The aim of this analysis is to compare the association between ESS and neointimal thickness (NT) in models obtained by the fusion of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and coronary angiography and in the reconstructions derived by the integration of IVUS and coronary angiography. We analyzed data from six patients implanted with an Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold that had biplane angiography, IVUS and OCT investigation at baseline and 6 or 12 months follow-up. The IVUS and OCT follow-up data were ...
