    Covering our tracks – optical coherence tomography to assess vascular healing

    Over the better part of two decades, lessons learned from stent failure have led to technical advances that have resulted in current-generation metallic drug-eluting stents (DES) with very low rates of target lesion failure (TLF) and stent thrombosis 1 . Continued efforts have been directed at achieving iterative improvements in the design of DES to enhance adaptive vascular healing following vascular injury. By promoting early strut coverage with minimal neointimal hyperplasia but a functioning endothelial layer, stent thrombosis may be minimised and, by reducing the inflammatory response to the foreign
