Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in the Assessment of Stent Deformation

      A 60-year-old man known to have hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and non–insulin-dependent diabetes and who was a previous smoker was admitted to our hospital with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Previously he underwent coronary artery bypass surgery after presenting with an ACS in 1992. Subsequently after presenting with a further ACS in 2007, he was treated with percutaneous coronary intervention and stenting to the distal segment of the saphenous vein graft to the obtuse marginal (SVG-OM) with a 3.5 × 18 mm Driver bare-metal stent (Medtronic, Santa Rosa, CA).
