    Comparison of optical coherence tomography-guided versus intravascular ultrasound-guided percutaneous coronary intervention: Rationale and Design of a Randomized, controlled OCTIVUS trial

    The clinical value of intracoronary imaging for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) guidance is well acknowledged. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) are the most common use for intravascular imaging to guide and optimize PCI in day-to-day practice. However, the comparative effectiveness of IVUS-guided and OCT-guided PCI with respect to clinical end points remains unknown. Methods and Design The OCTIVUS study is a prospective, multicenter, open-label, parallel-arm, randomized trial comparing the effectiveness of two imaging-guided strategies in patients with stable angina or acute coronary syndromes undergoing PCI in Korea. A total of 2000 patients are randomly assigned in a ...
