1. Determination of the Duration of the Dual Antiplatelet Therapy by the Degree of the Coverage of The Struts on Optical Coherence Tomography From the Randomized Comparison Between Everolimus-eluting Stents Versus Biolimus A9-eluting Stents

    Determination of the Duration of the Dual Antiplatelet Therapy by the Degree of the Coverage of The Struts on Optical Coherence Tomography From the Randomized Comparison Between Everolimus-eluting Stents Versus Biolimus A9-eluting Stents

    This study is a retrospective and prospective follow-up study of patients who were participating in a randomized comparative study (DETECT-OCT trial) to determine the duration of dual antiplatelet therapy for neointimal hyperplasia after Biolimus stent and Everolimus stent insertion . The primary objective of this study was to determine the duration of double antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) based on OCT results at 3 months after percutaneous coronary intervention with OCT guide and percutaneous coronary intervention with guided angiography. After that, patients who were enrolled in the previous DETECT-OCT study will be followed up for a 10 years follow-up.
