    Optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound assessment of the anatomic size and wall thickness of a muscle bridge segment

    Objective To use optical coherence tomography (OCT) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in assessing myocardial bridging (MB) vessel size and wall thickness. Background During stent implantation, MB is associated with complications, especially perforation. Methods OCT and IVUS were performed in 56 patients with typical angiographic “milking” from November 2016 to May 2017. The vessel area and thickness in the MB segments and adjacent proximal and distal reference segments were measured and compared with eight normal left anterior descending (LAD) segment (no atherosclerosis in a segment that was at least 20 mm long and that began ~40 mm distal to the LAD ...
