    1. Additional Debulking Efficacy of Low-Speed Rotational Atherectomy After High-Speed Rotational Atherectomy for Calcified Coronary Lesion

      Additional Debulking Efficacy of Low-Speed Rotational Atherectomy After High-Speed Rotational Atherectomy for Calcified Coronary Lesion

      We aimed to evaluate the additional debulking efficacy of low-speed rotational atherectomy (RA) after high-speed RA by using intravascular imaging. A total of 22 severe calcified coronary lesions in 19 patients (age, 74 ± 10 years; 74% male) were retrospectively analyzed. All of these lesions underwent RA under optical coherence tomography (OCT) or optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) guidance. At first, we performed high-speed RA with 220,000 rpm until the reduction of rotational speed disappeared; then, low-speed RA with 120,000 rpm using the same burr size was performed. OCT or OFDI was performed after both high-speed and low-speed RAs ...

    2. Clinical efficacy of optical coherence tomography-guided versus intravascular ultrasound-guided rotational atherectomy for calcified coronary lesion

      Clinical efficacy of optical coherence tomography-guided versus intravascular ultrasound-guided rotational atherectomy for calcified coronary lesion

      Aims: We aimed to evaluate whether optical coherence tomography (OCT)-guided rotational atherectomy (RA) improves stent expansion and clinical outcomes compared to intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-guided RA. Methods and results: We identified 247 de-novo calcified coronary lesions that underwent RA from our database between September 2013 and December 2017. Of these, lesions with no intravascular imaging data (n=11), poor image quality (n=7), balloon angioplasty alone (n=16), and complications (2 burr entrapment, 2 perforation) were excluded. Finally, 88 and 121 lesions that underwent OCT-guided and IVUS-guided RA, respectively, were enrolled. The primary endpoint of the present study was ...

    3. Efficacy of the proximal optimization technique on crossover stenting in coronary bifurcation lesions in the 3D-OCT bifurcation registry

      Efficacy of the proximal optimization technique on crossover stenting in coronary bifurcation lesions in the 3D-OCT bifurcation registry

      Aim We sought to investigate the efficacy of the proximal optimization technique (POT) on crossover stenting followed by side branch (SB) dilation under optical coherence tomography guidance in a multicenter registry study. Methods and results A total of 135 bifurcation lesions in 134 patients were divided into POT (n = 52) and non-POT groups (n = 83). The POT was performed before SB dilatation (pre-POT; n = 26), finally (final-POT; n = 12), at both timing (re-POT; n = 13), and uncertain (n = 1). There were no significant intergroup differences in the success rate of guide wire re-crossing (GWR) into the optimal cell (72% vs ...

    4. Differences between first-generation and second-generation drug-eluting stent regarding in-stent neoatherosclerosis characteristics: an optical coherence tomography analysis

      Differences between first-generation and second-generation drug-eluting stent regarding in-stent neoatherosclerosis characteristics: an optical coherence tomography analysis

      We compared first-generation and second-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) with respect to neoatherosclerosis using optical coherence tomography or optical frequency domain imaging. In-stent restenoses in 102 first-generation and 114 second-generation DES were retrospectively assessed. Neoatherosclerosis, which was defined as the presence of lipid-laden neointima or calcification inside a stent, was observed in 33 (27.2%) and 31 (32.4%) lesions in the first-generation and second-generation DES respectively. In the first-generation DES group, the lipid length was significantly longer (5.5 ± 3.8 vs. 3.1 ± 2.1 mm, P  = 0.0007), the lipid arc was significantly larger (324 ± 70° vs. 250 ...

    6. Very early neointimal coverage of new biodegradable polymer drug-eluting stent compared with durable polymer everolimus-eluting stent evaluated by optical frequency domain imaging

      Very early neointimal coverage of new biodegradable polymer drug-eluting stent compared with durable polymer everolimus-eluting stent evaluated by optical frequency domain imaging

      Polymeric component is associated with the increased risk of delayed vessel healing and stent endothelialization. We aimed to clarify neointimal coverage within 1 month after implantation of the new-generation abluminal biodegradable polymer (BP) drug-eluting stent (DES) compared with the second-generation durable polymer (DP) everolimus-eluting stent (EES). Between November 2015 and October 2016, 32 BP-DES and 25 DP-EES were evaluated by optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) within 1 month after the procedure. The average interval to follow-up OFDI was not significantly different between the groups (16.3 ± 7.7 days in BP-DES vs. 15.4 ± 7.4 days in DP-EES, P ...

    7. Impact of Guidewire Recrossing Point into Stent Jailed Side Branch for Optimal Kissing Balloon Dilatation - Corelab 3D Optical Coherence Tomography Analysis

      Impact of Guidewire Recrossing Point into Stent Jailed Side Branch for Optimal Kissing Balloon Dilatation - Corelab 3D Optical Coherence Tomography Analysis

      AIMS: We investigated the influence of the guidewire recrossing point on the incidence of incomplete stent apposition (ISA) after kissing balloon dilatation (KBD), and clinical and angiographic outcome at 9 months in a prospective multicenter registry. METHODS AND RESULTS: One hundred five patients underwent single crossover stenting across the side branch (SB) and subsequent KBD. Jailing configuration of the SB orifice and the guidewire recrossing position were assessed by off-line 3D-OCT in the corelab. We defined the cases that achieved both Link-Free carina configuration and the distal recrossing as the LFD group (54 cases), and the other cases were defined ...

      Feasibility and usefulness of three-dimensional optical coherence tomography guidance for optimal side branch treatment in coronary bifurcation stenting

      Background For the treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions, optimal guidewire (GW) recrossing after main vessel stenting is important for good stent apposition at the side branch (SB) orifice in kissing balloon inflation (KBI). Methods We analyzed 150 bifurcation lesions treated with single stenting following KBI in the three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D-OCT) bifurcation registry study (2015–16) and a single center experience (2012–16). OCT examination was performed after GW recrossing to the SB and after KBI. Patients were divided into two-dimensional (2D, n = 78) and 3D groups ( n = 72) according to 2D- or 3D-OCT guidance. GW recrossing position, jailing ...

      Impact of final kissing balloon inflation on vessel healing following drug-eluting stent implantation: Insight from the optical coherence tomography sub-study of the J-REVERSE trial

      Background We sought to clarify the impact of final kissing inflation (FKI) after single stenting of bifurcation lesions on vessel healing. Methods From the J-REVERSE registry enrolling 303 bifurcation lesions treated with provisional single stenting using sirolimus- (SES) or everolimus-eluting stent (EES), 65 lesions treated with ( n = 30) and without ( n = 35) FKI underwent 9-month follow-up optical coherence tomography. Average stent eccentricity index (SEI: minimum/maximum stent diameter) and neointimal unevenness score (NUS: maximum/average neointimal thickness of the same cross-section) for the proximal, bifurcation, and distal segments were compared between FKI and non-FKI groups. Results At the proximal segment ...
