    Differential Healing Response Attributed to Culprit Lesions of Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes And Stable Coronary Artery After Implantation of Drug-Eluting Stents: An Optical Coherence Tomography Study

    Background Pathology studies have shown delayed arterial healing in culprit lesions of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) compared with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) after placement of drug-eluting stents (DES). It is unknown whether similar differences exist in-vivo during long-term follow-up. Using optical coherence tomography (OCT), we assessed differences in arterial healing between patients with ACS and stable CAD five years after DES implantation. Methods and Results A total of 88 patients comprised of 53 ACS lesions with 7,864 struts and 35 stable lesions with 5’298 struts were suitable for final OCT analysis five years after DES ...
