    Multimodality Intravascular Imaging to Predict Periprocedural Myocardial Infarction During Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

    Objectives The aim of this study is to compare the relative merits of optical coherence tomography (OCT), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), and near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in patients with coronary artery disease for the prediction of periprocedural myocardial infarction (MI). Background Although several individual intravascular imaging modalities have been employed to predict periprocedural MI, it is unclear which of the imaging tools would best allow prediction of this complication. Methods We retrospectively analyzed 110 patients who underwent OCT, IVUS, and NIRS. Periprocedural MI was defined as a post-procedural cardiac troponin I (cTnI) elevation above 3× the upper limit of normal; analysis ...
