• Stent Enhancement during Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: Current Role, Technical Tips and Case Examples

    Highlights

    • Stent enhancement is a rapid and inexpensive tool that improves stent visualization.
    • It superimposes several frames from a cine-loop, providing a single, enhanced image.
    • It is very specific in assessing stent underexpansion and disruption.
    • It can be very useful in bifurcations, aorto-ostial lesions, or assessing stent failure.
    • It cannot replace intravascular imaging, but represents a valid aid in the cath-lab.
