    In vivo optical coherence tomography of experimental thrombosis in a rabbit carotid model

    Background:Plaque rupture with subsequent thrombosis is recognised as the underlying pathophysiology of most acute coronary syndromes. Thus, direct thrombus visualisation in vivo may be beneficial for both diagnosis and guidance of therapy. We sought to test the feasibility of imaging acute thrombosis in vivo using optical coherence tomography (OCT) in an experimental thrombosis animal model.Methods and results:Nine male New Zealand White rabbits (weight 3.0 kg) were made atherosclerotic with a high-cholesterol diet after injury of the right carotid artery endothelium. Thrombus was then induced with the use of Russell’s viper venom (RVV) and histamine. Subsequently ...
