|Official Title:||Intra-stent Tissue Evaluation Within BMS and DES > 3 Years Since Implantation|
|Study Start Date :||November 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||December 2015|
Patients who received a DES stent > 3 years ago.
Patients who received BMS stents > 3 years ago.
- Plaque composition [ Time Frame: During hospital stay, about 2 days. ]This study aims to test the hypothesis that plaque composition differs within the stent between BMS and DES. It is possible that a difference in plaque composition seen within the stent may be contributory to the late thrombotic events seen more frequently with DES.
