    A case report of a recurrent early and late Bioresorbable vascular scaffold thrombosis: serial angiography and optical coherence tomography findings

    Background In bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVSs), there is some concern about a possible increase in the rate of scaffold thromboses (ScTs). Although several characteristics similarly contribute to the development of both early and late ScTs, there are also clearly different pathomechanisms between the two time-dependent types of thromboses, especially with BVSs. Case presentation We recently experienced a very rare case of a 69-year-old man who had recurrent early and late ScTs with somewhat differing pathomechanisms as assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT). For the late ScT, OCT identified a scaffold dismantling in the same place that a peri-strut low intensity ...
