    Neoatherosclerosis in the Iliac Artery Stent ― Insights From Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound ―

    There has been increasing attention on neoatherosclerosis in coronary arteries following implantation of bare-metal and drug-eluting stents.1,2 Neoatherosclerosis might be a concern even in the field of peripheral artery disease (PAD). A 75-year-old man with hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia and a history of right iliac artery stenting with a Wallstent 12 years previously, was referred to hospital for treatment of recurrent/progressive intermittent claudication (Rutherford category 3) that had started 6 months earlier. Ankle brachial index (ABI) was 0.51 on the right. Diagnostic angiography showed significant in-stent restenosis in the right iliac artery stent (Figure A). Intravascular ...
