Movie 1: follow-up angioscopy in the middle of the Viabahn. A continuous angioscopic video image while pulling back in the vessel from distal to proximal detects yellow plaques seen through the expanded polytetrafluoroethylene and mural thrombi without neointima coverage

Movie 2: follow-up angioscopy at the proximal edge of the Viabahn. A continuous angioscopic video image while pulling back in the vessel from distal to proximal detects mural thrombi without neointima coverage, and a small gap between the proximal stent edge and luminal vessel wall
