INTRODUCTIONBioresorbable scaffolds have been heralded as the latest revolution in the field of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) . Unlike permanent metallic drug‐eluting stents (DES), bioresorbable scaffolds are designed to provide temporary structural integrity before being resorbed completely within the vessel. The transient presence of the scaffold offers a potential solution to the drawbacks of metallic DES; these drawbacks include hypersensitivity reactions, endothelial dysfunction, late stent thrombosis (ST), and preclusion of future surgical revascularization at the same lesion . With rapid technological advancement, cardiac multislice computed tomography (MSCT) angiography is currently considered to be an established technique for noninvasive evaluation of the coronary lumen and coronary plaques . However, MSCT assessment of a previously stented coronary artery is limited because of metal artifacts. Because of its radiolucent, polylactide backbone, the NeoVas scaffold does not affect computed tomography image interpretation, and MSCT can be used to assess changes in the lumen and vessels after its implantation.The angiographic, intravascular ultrasonography (IVUS), and optical coherence tomography (OCT) outcomes of this study were previously reported at the 6 months follow‐up . However, the clinical outcomes of the NeoVas scaffold for patients with single de novo lesions and plaque and lumen evolution at the 1 year follow‐up
