    One-Year Follow-Up Optical Coherence Tomography of a “Hybrid” Neocarina After T-Stenting With Small Protrusion Technique Using a Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold and a Metallic Stent

    A 75-year-old man with stable angina underwent coronary angiography demonstrating significant stenosis at the bifurcation of the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) with a diagonal branch (Figure 1 ). Following pre-dilation, a 3.5 × 28-mm bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) (Absorb, Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) was implanted in the LAD. This was followed by post-dilation with a 3.5-mm noncompliant balloon and subsequent “T kissing” inflation. Because of an extensive dissection in the proximal segment of the diagonal (Figure 1 ), a 2.5 × 28-mm everolimus-eluting stent (EES) was implanted using the T-stenting with small protrusion (TAP) technique followed by “T ...
