1. 3D Reconstruction of Coronary Artery Stents From Optical Coherence Tomography: Experimental Validation and Clinical Feasibility

    3D Reconstruction of Coronary Artery Stents From Optical Coherence Tomography: Experimental Validation and Clinical Feasibility

    The structural morphology of stents (e.g. expansion, lumen scaffolding, strut apposition, tissue protrusion, side branch jailing, strut fracture), and the local hemodynamic environment after stent deployment in coronary arteries are key determinants of procedural success and subsequent clinical outcomes. High-resolution intracoronary imaging has the potential to enable the geometrically correct 3D reconstruction of coronary stents. The aim of this work was to present a novel algorithm for 3D stent reconstruction of coronary artery stents by OCT and angiography, and test experimentally its accuracy, reproducibility, clinical feasibility and ability to perform CFD studies. Our method has the following steps: 3D ...
