    Multianalysis with optical coherence tomography and vasomotion in everolimus-eluting stents and everolimus-eluting biovascular scaffolds: the MOVES trial

    Aims To compare endothelium-dependent vasomotor function and vascular healing 15 months after implantation of two new-generation drug-eluting stents and biovascular scaffolds (BVS). Methods and results A total of 28 patients previously treated with a SYNERGY stent (bioabsorbable polymer everolimus-eluting stents (BP-EES)), a PROMUS stent (persistent polymer everolimus-eluting stents (PP-EES)) or an ABSORB (BVS) underwent control coronary angiography, 15 months after implantation, coupled with optical coherence tomography imaging and supine bicycle exercise. Intracoronary nitroglycerin was administered after exercise testing. Coronary vasomotor response was assessed using quantitative coronary angiography at rest, during supine bicycle exercise and after nitroglycerin. The primary end point ...
