Figure 12: OCT images showing underlying pathologies in late and very late stent thrombosis. (A–E) instent neo-atherosclerosis. (A) lipid rich plaque (yellow star) with white thrombus (white arrows), (B) TCFA with rupture (orange arrows) and (C) red thrombus (red star). (D) in stent neo-atherosclerosis with macrophages (red arrow heads) and (E) calcification (green star) with no superimposed thrombus. (F–H) uncovered stent struts resulting from (F) persistent malapposition, (G) late acquired malapposition and (H) apposed persistently uncovered stent struts with white thrombus (white arrows)
