    1. A case of severely calcified neoatherosclerosis-embedded stent struts clearly documented with optical coherence tomography imaging

      A case of severely calcified neoatherosclerosis-embedded stent struts clearly documented with optical coherence tomography imaging

      A 65-year-old Japanese man using peritoneal hemodialysis due to diabetic nephropathy underwent a planned coronary angiography as a preoperative examination. Fourteen years earlier, he had undergone a percutaneous coronary intervention due to acute myocardial infarction and had been implanted with a bare-metal stent in the left anterior descending coronary artery. Although his condition had run a benign course without any recurrence of cardiovascular events, coronary angiography was performed 14 years later in preparation for a living-donor kidney transplantation. Coronary angiography revealed less than 50% restenosis (Figure A). Although Figure B indicates circumferentially covered stent struts, the homogeneous neointima pattern observed ...

    2. Low eicosapentaenoic acid to arachidonic acid ratio is associated with thin-cap fibroatheroma determined by optical coherence tomography

      Low eicosapentaenoic acid to arachidonic acid ratio is associated with thin-cap fibroatheroma determined by optical coherence tomography

      Background A low eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)/arachidonic acid (AA) ratio is known to be associated with cardiovascular events. However, the relationship between the EPA/AA ratio and coronary plaque vulnerability assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) has not been examined thoroughly. This study examined the relationship between the EPA/AA ratio and coronary plaque vulnerability assessed by OCT in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods We evaluated 59 ACS patients who had undergone percutaneous coronary intervention using OCT. We divided them into 2 groups according to OCT findings—those with and without thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA)—and compared the EPA ...
