      Very late scaffold thrombosis: insights from optical coherence tomography and histopathology

      A 79-year-old male patient had a 2.5×12 mm bioresorbable vascular scaffold (Absorb™ BVS; Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, CA, USA) implanted in the setting of the RIBS VI study protocol for in-stent restenosis of a 3×9 mm bare metal stent (AVE S670; Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, USA) in January 2015, at which time point the patient presented with stable angina and positive exercise stress test (index procedure). The Absorb BVS was implanted with predilatation at 20 atmospheres (atm) accompanied by post-dilatation with a non-compliant balloon (2.5×10 mm) at 26 atm. The patient was maintained on dual antiplatelet ...

      Very Late Scaffold Thrombosis: Insights from Optical Coherence Tomography and Histopathology

      Aims: to investigate and understand the mechanisms of very late scaffold thrombosis 13 months following implantation in the setting of bare metal in-stent restenosis. Methods and results: we collected consecutive angiography, optical coherence tomography and full autopsy evaluation in a 79-year old patients presenting with cardiogenic shock and undergoing rescue PCI after suffering very late scaffold thrombosis. Combined assessment of angiography, optical coherence tomography and histopathology revealed heterogenous vascular healing 13 months following implantation of a bioresorbable vascular scaffold with presence of scaffold struts fully integrated into neointimal tissue while others remained uncovered and malapposed. Furthermore, plaque rupture within the ...
