    Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Patients With Recanalized Coronary Thrombi Treated With Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds

    Introduction Recanalized coronary thrombi (RCT) are rarely recognized in real-world clinical practice. Incidence and functional significance of RCT remain unclear. High-resolution imaging modalities, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), may provide novel insight to further characterize this unique phenomenon. 1 , 2 We present a case series of RCT treated with bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS). Case 1 A 75-year-old man with a previous history of an inferior myocardial infarction was admitted with congestive heart failure. Inferior hypokinesia was detected on echocardiography. Coronary angiography showed a filling defect and luminal haziness in the proximal segment of the right coronary artery (Figure 1A ...
