    Favorable early vessel healing after everolimus-eluting stent implantation: 3-, 6-, and 12-month follow-up of optical coherence tomography

    Background Although a prospective randomized control study revealed that 3-month dual anti-platelet therapy (DAPT) is safe and does not compromise the efficacy of everolimus-eluting stent (EES) in selected patients, detailed vessel healing at early phase after EES implantation has yet to be investigated in Japanese patients. Methods and results A total of 27 lesions in 19 patients treated with EES were serially evaluated by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) at 3, 6, and 12 months after stent implantation. In addition to standard quantitative OCT parameters, the percentage of stents with peri-strut low-intensity area (PLIA, a region around stent struts homogenously ...
