Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) still best predictor of stent thrombosis:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A few years ago intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) was heralded as the answer to stent thrombosis. Monitoring the procedure from inside the artery, its proponents argued, ensured perfect implantation, which is critical if subacute thrombosis is to be avoided. Since then, IVUS has fallen from favour with many cardiologists who argue that high pressure balloon inflation virtually guarantees perfect stent implantation. But data presented at the ACC casts doubt on this approach.
