Abstract

Restenosis of saphenous vein grafts (SVG) after bare-metal stent (BMS) implantation remains a clinical problem. Recently, intravascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been proposed as a high resolution intravascular imaging modality, and is able to distinguish several components of intracoronary structures. In vivo images of in-stent restenosis (ISR) lesions in an SVG using OCT have not been reported. In this case report, we present the characteristics of in vivo OCT images from an ISR lesion of an SVG after BMS implantation.
