    Optical coherence tomography assessment of in-stent restenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention with two-stent technique in unprotected left main

    Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has contributed to a better understanding of in-stent restenosis (ISR); however, studies evaluating ISR pattern after two-stent technique in unprotected left main (ULM) are lacking. We aim to evaluate the ISR pattern of proximal LAD and LCX after two-stent technique in ULM. Methods We performed OCT in 26 patients with isolated or combined ISR (identified by angiography as >50%) after two stent implantation in the proximal LCX and LAD. Finally, 13 LAD and 22 LCX ISR lesions underwent OCT assessments. OCT analyses were undertaken in the proximal segments of the LAD and LCX. In addition ...
