    1. Evaluation of vascular healing of polymer-free sirolimus-eluting stents in native coronary artery stenosis: a serial follow-up at three and six months with optical coherence tomography imaging

      Evaluation of vascular healing of polymer-free sirolimus-eluting stents in native coronary artery stenosis: a serial follow-up at three and six months with optical coherence tomography imaging

      Aims: Our aim was to assess vascular response after polymer-free sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) implantation by using an optical coherence tomography (OCT)-derived vascular healing score (HS), quantifying the deficiency of healing. Methods and results: In a prospective, multicentre, single-arm, open-label study, OCT examinations were performed at three months in 45 patients (47 lesions). Per protocol, 24 lesions which had not reached adequate vascular healing according to study criteria were scheduled for OCT examination at six months. The HS was calculated at two time points. Serial OCT imaging demonstrated that the proportion of covered stent struts increased from a median of ...

      Short-term effects of Nano+™ polymer-free sirolimus-eluting stents on native coronary vessels: an optical coherence tomography imaging study

      Aims: Newly developed drug-eluting stents (DES) aim to promote early endothelialisation and prevent stent thrombosis. We sought to evaluate the extent of neointima growth by optical coherence tomography (OCT) three months after implantation of a polymer-free stent with a nano-sized-pore surface eluting sirolimus. Methods and results: In this prospective, multicentre, open-label study, patients were enrolled with documented stable angina or silent ischaemia and planned intervention for up to two de novo coronary lesions (in different vessels), with lesion length of ≤18 mm. The primary OCT endpoint was the percentage of in-stent neointimal volume obstruction at three months. The secondary endpoints ...
