    A glimpse into first generation drug-eluting and bare metal stents ten years later with optical coherence tomography analysis

    Currently, the very long-term behavior of first-generation drug-eluting stents (DES) is not available. However, several studies have shown that the TAXUS™ paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES) (Boston Scientific, Natick, Massachusetts) is associated with a rate of 5-year stent thrombosis ranging from 3 to 7%, depending on the complexity of the lesion [1], with higher rates of very late stent thrombosis compared with second-generation DES [2].
