    Impact of Real-time Angiographic Co-registered OCT on PCI Results - the OPTICO-integration II Study

    Intracoronary optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging allows for high-resolution characterization of coronary lesions. Difficulties in matching cross-sectional OCT-images with angiographic lesion localization, however, may limit its clinical utilization. The investigators sought to prospectively assess the impact of a novel system of real-time OCT-coregistration with angiography (ACR) compared to OCT alone and to the clinical standard proceeding (angiographic guided-PCI) all used for coronary lesion evaluation before percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). The investigators hypothesize that the use of ACR will lead to less incidence of insufficient covered coronary lesions (geographical mismatch) and/or a less rate of edge dissections after PCI (combined ...
