    Optical Coherence Tomographic Evaluation of Transplant Coronary Artery Vasculopathy With Correlation to Cellular Rejection

    Background— Cardiac allograft vasculopathy is an accelerated fibroproliferative process that affects the coronary arteries of transplant ed hearts. Intra coronary imaging with optical coherence to mography enables detection of subangiographic cardiac allograft vasculopathy . Methods and Results— At the time of routine surveillance coronary angiography, 48 consecutive heart transplant recipients underwent optical coherence tomographic imaging of 1 coronary artery . Imaging findings were compared per rejection his to ry that was graded according to the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplant ation classification as none/mild (International Society of Heart and Lung Transplant ation 0, 1A/1B, or 2) or high-grade ...
