Impact of optical coherence tomography- and coronary angioscopy-assessed neointimal tissue characteristics on occurrence of periprocedural myonecrosis in patients with in-stent restenosis

Several characteristics of neointimal tissues, including neoatherosclerotic progression, have been reported in lesions with in-stent restenosis (ISR). However, the effects of these characteristics on outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ISR lesions remain unclear. We assessed the relationships between …
