  • Comparison of Endothelial Barrier Functional Recovery After Implantation of a Novel Biodegradable-Polymer Sirolimus-Eluting Stent in Comparison to Durable- and Biodegradable-Polymer Everolimus-Eluting



    A volumetric approach to measure stent expansion derived from optical coherence tomography (OCT) is superior in regards to clinical outcomes when compared to the conventional method. The current software already performs a semi-automatic assessment and it is available as a clinical tool, however data is still scarce. We evaluated the stent expansion analysis that uses a volumetric vessel model, called minimum expansion index – MEI and compared to the conventional model, which utilizes the minimum stent area expansion (MSAx) indexed to the references, and its potential impact on procedural decision-making strategy in percutaneous coronary intervention.
