Figure 1. Angiographic and OCT images over time. A) Coronary angiography showing coronary artery disease in the LAD and LCX at baseline and at three months with good result of implanted scaffolds, and at one-year follow-up, with no evidence of restenosis. B) Optical coherence tomography (OCT) post PCI, at three-month and one-year follow-up. Cross-sections are divided into proximal LAD (1), LAD bifurcated with diagonal (2), mid LAD overlapping scaffold (3) and LCX (4). At baseline circle arrowheads indicate correct apposition of the struts. At three months, dotted line arrows indicate partial covering of the majority of the struts and arrowheads indicate two layers ...
