Abstract

Aims: Irregular protrusion identified by optical coherence tomography (OCT) immediately following stent implantation has been reported as an independent predictor for adverse cardiac events at 1 year. However, baseline characteristics for development of irregular protrusion are unknown. The aim of the study was to identify predictors for irregular protrusion following stent implantation.

Methods and results: A total of 900 lesi…
