1. Long Term Follow-Up of Neointimal Coverage after Silorimus-Eluting Stent Implantation -Optical Coherence Tomography Study

    OBJECTIVES: Late thrombosis after sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) implantation is a major clinical problem probably due to the failure of re-endothelialization over the implanted stent struts. Recent studies have shown that intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) can not detect neointimal hyperplasia (NIH) on most SES even at chronic phase. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new intravascular imaging modality with a resolution of 10µm. In this study, we evaluate the serial changes of neointimal growth over the SES struts at long term follow-up by using intravascular OCT. METHODS: Thirty-six patients after SES-implantation (66.5 y/o, 9 patients with ACS and 27 with ...
