1. Stent Coverage and Neointimal Proliferation in Bare Metal Stents Postdilated With a Paclitaxel-Eluting Balloon Versus Everolimus-Eluting Stents: Prospective Randomized Study Using Optical Coherence Tomography at 6-Month Follow-Up

    Stent Coverage and Neointimal Proliferation in Bare Metal Stents Postdilated With a Paclitaxel-Eluting Balloon Versus Everolimus-Eluting Stents: Prospective Randomized Study Using Optical Coherence Tomography at 6-Month Follow-Up

    B a ckground— In this randomized tri a l, strut coverage and neointimal proliferation of a ther a py of bare metal stents (BMSs) postdilated with the p a clit a xel drug-elut in g balloon (DEB) w a s comp a red with everolimus drug-elut in g stents (DESs) at 6-month follow-up using optical coherence tomography . We hypothesized sufficient stent coverage at follow-up . Methods and Results— A tot a l of 105 lesions in 90 p at ients were tre at ed with either XIENCE V DES (n=51) or BMS postdilated with the SeQuent Ple a se DEB ...
