Optical Coherence Tomography Image of Coronary Spasm in a Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold

Published:December 27, 2017DOI:
      A 51-year-old man presented with an acute coronary syndrome without ST-segment elevation. Coronary angiography showed the culprit to be the proximal left anterior descending artery, which was treated with a bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) 3.00 × 18-mm (Absorb; Abbott Vascular, Temecula, CA).
