    Optical coherence tomography image of coronary spasm in a bioresorbable vascular scaffold

    We present a clinical case about a patient with a previuous angioplasty with lactic acid bioresorbible vascular scaffold on proximal left anterior descending artery. The patient suffered recurrent angina four year later. During catheterization, coronary spasm was observed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and solved with intracoronary nitroglicerine. The OCT showed a singular pattern in medial and luminal area.
