In coronary arteries, final stent area is an important predictor for subsequent clinical events and restenosis. Acute stent recoil has been identified as a contributor for inadequate stent expansion. However, assessment of acute recoil is complex. We describe a method for real time imaging of acute recoil with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in a …
