    Bioresorbable vascular scaffold overlap evaluation with optical coherence tomography after implantation with or without enhanced stent visualization system (WOLFIE study): a two-centre prospective comparison

    To assess if enhanced stent visualization (ESV)-guided implantation of overlapping bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) is superior to angiography alone-guided implantation in the reduction of overlap length. WOLFIE is a two-centre prospective open study enrolling 30 patients treated with implantation of at least two overlapping BVS. In the first centre (London), BVS implantation was guided by conventional angiography, while in the second centre (Ferrara), an ESV system was systematically employed. The primary endpoint of the study was overlap length. Secondary endpoints were: stacked struts number, area, thickness, and amount of clusters. In the ESV-guided group, overlap length was significantly lower ...
