1. Optical Coherence Tomography Assessment Of The Acute Effects Of Stent Implantation On The Vessel Wall. A Systematic Quantitative Approach

    Objective: To observe and characterise vessel injury post-stenting using optical coherence tomography (OCT), to propose a systematic OCT classification for periprocedural vessel trauma, to evaluate its frequency in stable vs unstable patients and to assess its clinical impact during the hospitalization period. Setting: stenting causes vessel injury. Design and interventions: All consecutive patients in whom OCT was performed after stent implantation were included in the study. Qualitative and quantitative assessment of, tissue prolapse, intrastent dissection and edge dissection were performed. Results: Seventy-three patients (80 vessels) were analyzed. Tissue prolapse within the stented segment was visible in 78/80 vessels (97 ...
