    ‘Full-plastic jacket’ with bioresorbable vascular scaffolds: 5-year optical coherence tomography follow-up

    A 54-year-old male patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus and dyslipidaemia was referred to our catheterization laboratory for unstable angina. Coronary angiography revealed severe diffuse and distal three-vessel coronary artery disease. The patient refused bypass surgery and was therefore scheduled for multivessel percutaneous coronary intervention. Following the PSP (pre-dilatation, vessel sizing, post-dilatation) strategy, three 3.0 × 28 mm everolimus-eluting bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS, Absorb, Abbott Vascular, USA) were implanted in the left anterior descending (LAD) artery, three 3.0 × 28 mm BRS in the right coronary artery (RCA) and one single 2.5 × 28 mm BRS was deployed in the obtuse ...
