However, permanent metallic stenting could preclude surgical revascularization, and jail-side branches prevent expansive remodeling, eliminate reactive vasomotion, and impair the noninvasive imaging of coronary arteries with multislice X-ray computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (12).
The primary endpoints of the trial are change in dimension of the lumen (interior of the vessel) over time and vasomotion (vessel movement) at the treated vessel segment, which will be assessed based on changes in the vessel diameter in response to a stimulus.
