    Optical coherence tomography tissue coverage and characterization with grey-scale signal intensity analysis after bifurcation stenting with new generation bioabsorbable polymer drug-eluting stent

    Purpose Bifurcation stenting is thought to be associated with delayed healing and a subsequent risk of stent failure. The aim of this study was to further evaluate healing of thin-strut bioabsorbable polymer everolimus-eluting stents (EES) post bifurcation stenting by optical coherence tomography (OCT) including grey-scale signal intensity (GSI) analysis. Methods Patients receiving bifurcation stenting with a planned two-stent approach using EES with OCT follow-up at 3–6 months post-stenting were included in this study. Morphometric analysis of contiguous cross-sections was performed at 1 mm longitudinal intervals within the stented segment. GSI analysis of neointimal regions of interest (ROI) overlying stent ...
