    Cut-off value of strut-vessel distance for the resolution of acute incomplete stent apposition in the early phase using serial optical coherence tomography after cobalt-chromium everolimus-eluting stent implantation

    Objective The purpose of this study was to identify a cut-off value to predict the resolution of incomplete-stent-apposition (ISA) after cobalt-chromium everolimus-eluting stent (CoCr-EES) implantation at early follow-up. Background To date, appropriate stent apposition at the acute period using intracoronary imaging has been recommended because persistent ISA is considered to be a risk factor for stent thrombosis. We examined the indices for resolving acute ISA. In particular, we determined the cut-off value for strut vessel distance (SV-distance) as visualized by optical coherence tomography (OCT) at 8 months after CoCr-EES implantation. However, the cut-off value of SV-distance for the earlier resolution ...
