    Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in the assessment of Stent Deformation

    Longitudinal stent deformation (LSD) is a recognized complication of stenting procedure, characterized by stent distortion, affecting its length. LSD requires prompt recognition and treatment to avoid potential risk of stent thrombosis. Here we present a case of LSD, confirmed by optical coherence tomography. This case highlights importance of intravascular imaging in recognition of this complication.
