Abstract

Neoatherosclerosis is an unsolved problem with Drug-Eluting Stent (DES) and is the results of atherosclerosis progression; however, the contribution of stent itself to the process has not been clarified, especially among the second-generation DES. We found an interesting case in which neoatherosclerosis was formed only in the area very close to the stent struts suggesting that stent itself may play an important role for the formation of neoatherosclerosis still in the second-generation DES.
