    Feasibility, reproducibility and characteristics of coronary bifurcation type assessment by three-dimensional optical coherence tomography

    Aim To investigate the characteristics of coronary artery bifurcation type (parallel or perpendicular type) using three-dimensional (3D) optical coherence tomography (OCT), and determine the feasibility, reproducibility, assessment time and correlation with bifurcation angles measured by 3D quantitative coronary angiography (QCA). Methods and results We evaluated 60 lesions at the coronary bifurcation that were treated by main vessel (MV) stenting with kissing balloon inflation (KBI) under OCT/optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) guidance. Inter- and intra-observer agreement regarding the assessment of 3D bifurcation types were 0.88 and 0.94, respectively. The assessment times of 3D-OCT bifurcation type with OCT and ...
