    Bioabsorbable Drug-Eluting Stent Versus Bare Metal Stent in Iliac Artery Evaluated by Optical Coherence Tomography: An In Vivo Study in Porcine

    Objective: This study aimed to compare, using optical coherence tomography (OCT), the outcomes of bioabsorbable drug-eluting stent with those of bare metal stent (BMS) following implantation in porcine iliac artery. Methods: After the placement of BMS and bioabsorbable drug-eluting stents, we used OCT and digital subtraction angiography to investigate stent appositions, arterial neointima, evagination, and restenosis at 1 and 3 months. Results: At 1 and 3 months after stent implantation, OCT study was performed to investigate 32 stents and 21 788 struts. Thirty-three malapposed struts were found in the bioabsorbable drug-eluting stent groups and 2 were found in BMS groups ...
